Product Inforation – Insect Growth Regulators & Larvicide
Fast-acting Summit B.T.I. Briquets have been the industry standard in extended release B.T.I.
formulations for control of mosquitoes in the larvae stage. Few products match their record of reliable and
environmentally compliant performance. The product is a small circular cork matrix that floats on standing
How it works:
As the briquet slowly dissolves, it releases a bacterium which is toxic to all species of mosquito
larvae. The active ingredient in Summit B.T.I. Briquets is bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (B.T.I.)
which is a common soil-borne substance. B.T.I. is a bacterium that is deadly to mosquito larvae but harmless
to other living things, for instance, aquatic insects, fish and other aquatic life are not harmed. Summit B.T.I.
Briquets can be used any place water collects and allows mosquitoes to breed and remain for periods of
time. After female mosquitoes lay their eggs in or near standing water treated with a Summit Bti Briquet, the
larvae that hatch feed on the B.T.I. The B.T.I. will kill the mosquito larvae before they can develop into adults
capable of spreading diseases.

How It Works
Any area with standing water is a potential mosquito breeding ground. Mosquitoes aren’t just a nuisance
anymore; they’re a serious health risk. With just one bite, they can transmit the deadly West Nile virus and
other diseases that can cause encephalitis. Altosid® Pro-G kills mosquito larvae before they can develop into
troublesome adults. One application provides control for up to 30 days, without adversely affecting people or
pets, and gives your customers another line of defense against these pests.
