Aquabac DF3000 is a water-dispersible granule formulation of bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (BTI) that is effective against mosquitoes, blackflies, nuisance flies and nuisance aquatic midges in a variety of habitats.

It offers the storage of a dry product with the application versatility of a liquid spray. Aquabac DF3000 can be applied with aerial, ground equipment or direct. It can be applied concentrate, or diluted with water, for ultra-low volume (ULV) or conventional high or low volume applications. When used with ULV equipment, the BTI mist droplets will be disperse and reached water retention sites like tree-holes, leaf axils, fallen leaves, roof gutters and ground depressions where conventional application methods deem inaccessible. The BTI mist droplets gradually settle in the water where it is eaten by mosquito larvae growing there, hence killing them.

When mosquito larvae eat the bacteria, toxins produced by the bacteria bind to certain kinds of cells (called receptor cells) in the gut of the mosquito. This process disrupts the way the gut works and ultimately causes the insect to starve to death.


Aquabac DF3000 can be used in several areas with standing water. It can be used for treatment in ditches, floodwater, standing ponds, livestock watering ponds and troughs, pastures, tidal water, catch basins and in fields growing crops may be treated at the recommended rates.


Aquabac DF 3000 can be applied to any water sites except treated, finished drinking water reservoirs or drinking water receptacles.
