Duplex-G Larvicid delivers dual-active control through a combination of biorational control agent (S)-methoprene and biological control agent Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (Bti) in a granular formulation.
Duplex-G Larvicide is a dual action extended residual biological larvicide and insect growth regulator granular product to kill mosquito larvae and prevent adult mosquito emergence (including those mosquitoes that may transmit diseases, including West Nile virus, Dengue, Chikungunya, and Zika virus).
Duplex-G Larvicide is a unique combination of a Bacillus thuringiensis v. israelensis (Bti) biological larvicide and S-Methoprene Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that provides dual action control. Duplex-G Larvicide provides quick kill of existing mosquito larvae and residual control of subsequent broods. This dual combination larvicide is highly effective against multiple broods of mosquitoes in a variety of habitats. Duplex-G Larvicide, when applied to the water column, releases effective levels of Bti to begin killing larvae within 24 hrs. after application. Once the Bti has killed existing larvae, the IGR in Duplex-G provides residual control and prevents adult mosquito emergence for up to 28 days when applied at rates of 5 – 20 pounds per acre.
Duplex-G Larvicide releases effective levels of the Bti biological larvicide for up to 72 hours after application and S-Methoprene insect growth regulator prevents the emergence of adult mosquitoes. Continue applications throughout the entire season to maintain control. IGR treated larvae continue to develop normally to the pupal stage where they die.
