A liquid product containing silicone which can easily be applied to the surface of stagnant and standing water; it forms an ultra-fine film on the surface which covers the whole extension. Suitable for control at the mosquitoe’s immature stages (larvae and pupae); it also deters eggs being laid on the surface of the treated water. Indicated for use on standing and stagnant water: lakes, reservoirs, rice fields, drains, channels, manholes, gullies, water tanks, plant pot saucers, buckets, septic tanks, tyres, guttering, etc.
As it is: 1 ml undiluted product per m2 of standing water surface.
Residual value: at least 30 days.
AQUATAIN AMF™ is a unique, eco-friendly, next-generation product to control mosquito larvae. AQUATAIN AMF™ is a liquid product containing silicone (polydimethylsiloxane - PDMS) which can easily be applied to the surface of stagnant and standing water; it forms an ultra-fine film on the surface which covers the whole extension.
To date, AQUATAIN AMF™ is a product authorised for free sale - no registration necessary - in Italy and in all European Union countries, Switzerland, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand. No resistance cases have been registered.
AQUATAIN AMF™ exclusively produces a physical-mechanical type of action and does not contain any potentially toxic component. It prevents larvae and pupae from taking in the oxygen they require to develop into adults, causing them to suffocate as a result. In fact, the low surface tension of the silicone film prevents larvae and pupae from attaching to the surface of the water in order to take in the oxygen from the air that they need to survive. Moreover, studies have shown that the low surface tension also has an impact on spawning: adult females do not lay their eggs on water that has been treated with AQUATAIN AMF™and should they come into contact with the silicone film whilst laying their eggs, they would become trapped and die.This way, the entire life cycle of the mosquito is blocked. PDMS is a polymer which has many applications: from the pharmaceutical industry to cosmetics, in the food industry (as an additive) and in construction, for making lubricants, medical devices, etc. It is an inert substance, with negligible toxicity, non-flammable, non-volatile, with low solubility and a tendency to sedimentation, which degrades naturally in the environment (through sunlight) into harmless compounds normally present in nature: inorganic silicates (SiO2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).Operators using the product do not require any particular individual protection.
