How to Apply:
Simply place Mosquito Torpedo in standing water, where mosquitoes may breed. Remove only enough product from the packaging for immediate use.

Apply this product as a preventive measure (pre-flood treatment) to application sites before they fill with water. Mosquito Torpedo may also be used in sites that intermittently fill with water.

Do NOT apply to water that may drain into public waterways such as streams or lakes.

Pre-Strike Mosquito Torpedo (Mosquito Torpedo) is an easy and effective way to kill developing mosquitoes in standing water before they become breeding, biting adults. With just one bite an adult mosquito may transmit West Nile virus and other viruses that can cause encephalitis in both people and animals. They may also transmit heartworm disease to dogs and cats. Mosquito Torpedo slowly and continuously releases an Insect Growth Regulator into water to prevent adult mosquito development for up to two months. Mosquito larvae exposed to treated water die in the pupa stage before they reach adulthood.
DO NOT apply to water that drains into public waterways.
