Aquastrike VCF–( Product developed by Malaysian subsidiary ) waiting for WHO Approval since last 3 yrs ( Not sure whether they will get approval or not but its a interesting product )
It is a non toxic, non polluting, Eco-friendly solution, produced
• Simply poured on the water surface at a rate of 1ml per square meter, the silicon based
liquid forms a molecule thick film, that doesn't stop water oxygenation (so no effect on fish, worms, snails and vegetals) but alter the water surface tension
. As a result, larvae and pupae are unable to attach their breathing syphon and end up drowning.
• The adult mosquitoes while trying to lay eggs on the surface of the water, drown because of the lower surface tension.
• It doesn't kill the mosquitoes by poisoning. Aquastrike effect is physical not chemical,
which eliminates the risk of mosquito developing immunity to the product as it is the case
with some insecticides or even BTI.
