Function – silicone-based liquid product for mosquito control.
Active ingredient – polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS silicone), 89%
Mode of action. It is easily applied and spreads rapidly across the standing water surface and forms a very thin film. The substance has an effect at physical-mechanical level, retaining its effectiveness for at least 4 weeks. The thin silicone film formed on the water surface after applying, disrupts mosquitoes development on immature stages (larvae and pupae), and also prevents egg laying by female mosquitoes.
Dosage. Aquatain AMF is meant to be used in standing and still water: lakes, ponds, rice fields, sewerage, water drainage, manholes, gutters, water tanks, ditches, etc. 1 ml of substance per square meter of lentic water surface should be applied. The liquid rapidly spreads over the water body surface, forming a thin film. There is no need to use special equipment and personal protection equipment for those who carry out the application.
Additional information. Presence of silicone PDMS compound does not change such water parameters as temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, hardness, content of ammonia and nitrogen. In particular, the amount of dissolved oxygen is within the limits suitable for aquatic flora and fauna survival. Silicone PDMS may contact with drinking water. It does not cause allergy.
