Aquatain AMF is
unique silicone-based liquid for mosquito control
It spreads across the surface of standing water – even large water bodies – and forms a very thin film. As silicones have a very low surface tension, the film prevents pupae and larvae from attaching themselves at the surface while attempting to breathe, causing them to drown. The product has a purely physical action and does not contain any toxic chemicals.
Its strong spreading action ensures that it will move around vegetation and other obstacles on the surface, and
it is highly resistant to wind or wave action. It is also unaffected by rain falling on the surface.
Extensive trials around the world have shown that Aquatain AMF is effective on the surface for up to 4 weeks.
Silicones – the active ingredients in Aquatain AMF – are one of the most widely used polymers in the world.
They are used in consumer products such as shampoos and lipsticks, medicinal and pharmaceutical products,
industrial products such as waterproofing compounds, and even in food applications.
How Does Aquatain AMF Compare to Other Mosquito Control Products?
Unlike bed nets and chemical spraying, which are aimed at adult mosquitoes, Aquatain AMF is aimed at the mosquito breeding stages and is therefore complementary to these methods. In addition, as Aquatain AMF has a physical action rather than a chemical action, mosquitoes cannot develop a resistance to it. This is a very important advantage, as there is emerging evidence that commonly used mosquito control measures are becoming ineffective.
Also has advantages over chemical and biological larvicides
Special application equipment is not needed
It can spread into areas of water which other larvicides can't access
It can be applied by the general public
Its efficacy is not affected in heavily polluted water
It has an impact on all stages of the breeding cycle – not just on one stage
Unlike chemical larvicides, it is non-toxic.
