Any standing water can breed swarms of mosquitoes, even your birdbath or rain barrel. Our Mosquito Control Rings contain Bt israelensis, a naturally occurring bacterium that kills mosquito larvae for a full 30 days. Each slow-release, floating Control Ring treats 100 square feet of surface area in your pond or water garden.

About Me Do-It-Yourself
Comments about Mosquito Control Rings:
I used these in my cellar that had some standing water in the past. SO now I have read some comments I wonder if using them in my bird bath is safe..they say it can be used in any water not meant for human consumption what about birds or squirrels or other wildlife...not bugs?? Does the product contain something harmful to animals? or animals bugs that eat mosquitoes?? May sound crazy but we'd like to know.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: The rings contain Bt israelensis, which is a naturally occurring bacterium, that kills mosquito larvae. The product is safe for birds and animals.

It Works Great!
from Southeastern Pennsylvania
I'm an avid gardener living in an area with low yearly rainfall totals. So I have rainbarrels in 8 different places. Then I also have overflow barrels sitting seperately in case anything gets full. But standing barrels of water breeds mosquitoes, especially in hot and dry weather. Since I've started these, the bug population in my yard has reduced tremendously. When I ran out for a few weeks, my family and I were getting bit constantly when outside. Yes, they work!

Safe mosquito control!

It's great to be able to enjoy my outdoor space and be able to provide water for birds and wildlife without pesky mosquitos.

These rings are easy and do work. Small amounts of water require smaller amounts of the control, so the rings can be broken or crumbled according to amount needed. They have made a difference in the increasing number of mosquitoes in our area.
