Be Mosquito Free with Mosquito Dunks (6 Pack)

A Mosquito Dunk looks like a small, beige donut that floats on standing water. As the Mosquito Dunk slowly dissolves, it releases a bacterium that is toxic to all species of mosquito larvae. 

The Mosquito Dunk kills mosquitoes before they're old enough to bite. The Mosquito Dunks are America's best-selling homeowner mosquito control product. This 6 pack of Mosquito Dunks can last around 180 days.

Summit brand Mosquito dunks are the beige donut no mosquito can resist

Mosquito Dunks, manufactured by Summit, is the only product on the market with BTI, a bacteria toxic that is only toxic to mosquito larvae. One Dunk can last 30 days and is able to treat 100 square feet of surface water. The best part is the Mosquito Dunks are non-toxic to all other wildlife including pets, fish, animals, and humans. Simply float a Mosquito Dunks doughnut in any standing water or water garden. Kills within hours last for 30 days or more. Labeled For Organic Gardening by the USEPA. Highly effective low-impact product.

Dunks contain BTI which is specifically designed to kill mosquitos at their larvae stage

Mosquito Dunks are the only sustained-release B.T.I. mosquito larvacides available. The floating Briquettes formulation releases effective levels of B.T.I. at the water's surface for a period of 30 days or more. Mosquito Dunks remain in the water column where mosquito larvae feed, to give you continuous kill. Made with natural B.T.I., Mosquito Dunks represent a major breakthrough for people and the environment when compared with the traditional toxic chemical approach to mosquito control.

B.T.I. is a bacterium that controls mosquitoes and black flies in their larval filter-feeding stage of development. Mosquito Dunks release a constant, low dose of B.T.I. so early instars may survive temporarily. However, continuous ingestion of the active ingredient produces a chronic infection, which kills the larvae so you will not observe pupae and the adult mosquitoes will not emerge. The larvae die after consuming the bacteria that causes a disease specific to them but is harmless to all other forms of wildlife. 

Mosquito dunks are designed for mosquito control use in pools, ponds, bird baths and other standing water

Once a month float a Mosquito Dunk in the pool, pond, bird bath, trough, water garden, large rain puddles, flower pots, rain barrels, and anywhere else that water accumulates around your home. Each Mosquito Dunk will effectively treat up to 100 square feet of surface water regardless of depth. Dunks may be broken apart to treat smaller areas.

Mosquito Dunks are non-toxic they are designed to be safe for use around fish, animals, and people

Mosquito Dunks are non-toxic to all organisms outside of the true fly family. It will not harm pets, humans, birds, fish, amphibians, or beneficial insects. If a dog was to eat the product, which has occurred in the past, it would not cause poisoning. The only adverse effects that could occur would be indigestion due to the fact that it is high in fiber, and would be similar to eating wood with calcium. The dog might vomit or have diarrhea, but that would be all.

What are mosquito dunks made of?

The active ingredient in Mosquito Dunks is BTI, which stands for Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis. BTI is a bacterium that is deadly to mosquito larvae but harmless to other living things.

Are mosquito dunks safe for other insects, animals and pets?

While Mosquito Dunks will kill all mosquito larvae in standing water, they are labeled for use in animal watering troughs, ponds, birdbaths, and other areas in which animals and pets will drink and bathe.   Mosquito Dunks are also completely harmless to plants, fish, frogs, turtles, and other beneficial insects.

Do Mosquito Dunks fully dissolve? When to put out a new Mosquito Dunks?

Mosquito Dunks will fully dissolve within about 30 days. When the Mosquito Dunk has disappeared from the surface of the water, then it is time to replace it with a new Dunk.

How many mosquito dunks for the pool?

One Mosquito Dunk will work on 100 square feet of surface water. So it will depend on how long and wide your pool is as to how many Dunks you may need. You can prevent the Dunks from floating around by anchoring them with a small piece of string through the center hole.

How long do mosquito dunks take to work?

While floating, a Mosquito Dunk slowly releases a long-term biological mosquito larvicide at the water’s surface. This larvicide gradually settles in the water, and while it travels through the water it is eaten by the mosquito larvae growing there. When female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water treated with a Mosquito Dunk®, the larvae will hatch and begin to eat the Bti. The Bti will kill the mosquito larvae before they can grow up to become biting and disease-spreading adults. With continuous use, you should notice a reduction in mosquitos within a couple of months.
