Use Altosid® Liquid Larvicides for a Clean Application

Altosid® Liquid Larvicide is a trusted insect growth regulator (IGR) product that prevents mosquito larvae from developing into breeding, biting adults. Its microencapsulated formulation provides for residual control, easy mixing with only mild agitation, significantly reduced treatment costs, and no concern for unwanted coating to internal spray equipment or treated surfaces. Altosid® Liquid Larvicide provides effective larval control of disease-carrying mosquitoes, including Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus without disrupting non-target organisms.

Unlike conventional pesticides, each Altosid® formulation contains (S)-methoprene, an insect growth regulator (IGR) that stops mosquitoes from becoming breeding, biting adults. Altosid® Liquid Larvicide Mosquito Growth Regulator (SR-5 ) and Altosid® Liquid Larvicide Concentrate (SR-20) provide exceptional control across a wide range of habitats, including terrestrial sites including water-holding containers, temporary or floodwater mosquito breeding areas and irrigated cropland.
