The foundation of AQUABAC Xt is a naturally occurring soil bacteria known as Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) that acts as a biological larvicide (biolarvicide). When applied to almost any aquatic habitat where mosquitoes and black flies breed, this microbial insecticide is highly effective against these pests in the larval stage. The liquid formulation of AQUABAC Xt is also a great choice for controlling aquatic midges, which can be quite troublesome in wastewater treatment plants and waterways.

The Bti in AQUABAC Xt works as an insecticide by producing a protein (insecticidal crystal protein – ICP) that is lethal to the pest larvae once it is ingested. This deadly process occurs rapidly after application; some will die within hours with complete larval mortality within 24 hours. Since AQUABAC Xt must be ingested by the larvae to perform as an insecticide, this product will not be effective against insect pupae and adults. Insects in the late larval stages that are no longer actively feeding are also not affected.
AQUABAC Xt is a stellar choice for those that are seeking a powerful, proven and convenient insecticide that will not harm the environment. Benefits of using AQUABAC Xt include:
