We are offering 1lb shakers of Mosquito Preventer (Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. israelensis, Bti) reg. 12.99 for 3.99 ea. in an effort to help reduce mosquito populations this spring before they get worse (they are already out and I have been bitten). Bti is a naturally occurring soil bacteria that kills the larva of a very narrow group of insects (Mosquito, Black Flies, Midges and Fungus Gnats) and no others. It often attacks and kills within 24 hours. It is safe to apply to areas used by birds, pets or wildlife or that contain aquatic life, plants and fish.
