SunSpray® MLO Spray Oil
An Effective Mosquito Larvicide
This highly refined spray oil is specifically designed to kill mosquito larvae and pupae. Applied by either aerial or ground spray, Sunspray MLO leaves a thin surface film over water in mosquito breeding areas. It kills the mosquito larvae and pupae by suffocation before they reach the adult stage. No mosquito is known to develop resistance to this type of control.
When to apply.
Since mosquitoes can hatch within 5 to 7 days of warm weather after egg deposition, stagnant water expected to be exposed for such a time should be treated with Sunspray MLO.
Where to apply.
Sunspray MLO may be applied to the water surface in swamps, marshes, intermittently flooded areas, drainage areas, storm sewer catch basins, waste treatment facilities, settling ponds, ditches, log ponds, temporary rain pools, abandoned swimming pools, fountains and ponds.
