Residual Mosquito Control: Proven Performance with Altosid® P35

June 24, 2020

Mosquito control is an essential public health service to communities across the United States. As programs look for ways to maximize efficiency, procuring an effective lineup of products that have long-lasting residual is essential in stopping mosquito populations and protecting communities.

The Altosid® family of products from Central Life Sciences are mosquito larvicides that provide consistent control and performance. Depending on the product form, residual control activity can range from 7 days all the way up to 150 days — allowing professionals peace of mind when concerned about being covered when it’s needed most.

The history of Central Life Sciences goes back to the development of the original insect growth regulator, (S)-methoprene, the first IGR introduced for mosquito control. During the 50-year history, many formulations have been developed to address the varied mosquito habitats that mosquito professionals encounter. Central Life Sciences has established a legacy of innovation by continually introducing new technology and products, including most recently, Altosid® P35.

Altosid® P35 is a unique granule formulation with extended release technology that allows for 35 days of residual control in continuously wet conditions. Also providing pre-treatment capabilities 15 days prior to flooding (pre-hatch), Altosid® P35 features dual encapsulation for short- and long-term release of its active ingredient.
