PRODUCT : Containing Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis, Serotype H-14, Strain 164.

TRADE NAME : Bacticide WP

ACTIVE INGREDIENT : (a) Parasporal crystal containing Deltaendotoxin (5% - 8%)

(b) Spores (5% - 8%)

POTENCY : Minimum 5000 IU/mg

SPECTRUM : Highly effective against feeding larval stages of various mosquito species e.g. Aedes, Culex, Anopheles, Culisetta, Psorophora, Uranotaenia, Mansonia, Simulium spp, Phlebotomus argentipes, vectors causing Malaria, Filaria, Japanese Encephalitis, Chikunguniya, Dengue, Nuisance mosquitoes, Onchocerciasis, kala-Azar etc.

MODE OF ACTION :Bacticide acts on host larvae through its parasporal crystal delta endotoxin and bacterial spores, causing starvation, paralysis and septicaemia of larval bodies ultimately resulting death of larval bodies.The endotoxin acts on midgut epithelium causing disintegration of gut wall, cessation of feeding activity, starvation and leakage of gut contents into haemolymph and body cavity of the larvae leading to general paralysis of larval body. The spores germinate to form bacterial cells that multiply in the larval gut body causing septicemia, leading to death of larvae. Surviving larvae if any, because of consuming sub-lethal doses,lead to under developed /deformed pupae unable to form the progenies.

FORMULATION : Wettable Powder(WP)


Dosage : 2 kg - 5kg. per Ha. For use in both clean and polluted water at a residual of 2 - 4 weeks.

Make homogenous solution of required dosage quantity of Bacticide WP in a small quantity of water. Dilute this solution into 200 ltrs of water under intermittent stirring. This solution is sufficient for one hectare water surface area and should be sprayed using knapsack sparyer with a flat fan nozzle or any other conventional sprayers, at fortnightly/monthly intervals in both clean and polluted water bodies. In case of basins deeper than 0.5 mtr or with heavy vegetation the dosage may be suitably increased. For optimum results, its advised to remove vegetation before spray.

Use of Bacticide W.P. results in sharp and continuous decline of larval populations (90%-100%) within 6-24 hrs. of application, in various habitats and ecologically different sites including drains, water streams, sewerage tanks, water coolers, cooling towers, fountains, construction sites, industrial scraps, rice fields, septic tanks ditches, pools, marshy ponds etc. This results into decline of adult mosquito population.

ECO-SAFETY : Extremely safe to non-target species including mammals, human beings, parasites and predators of mosquito larvae, insects, hydrobionts, fishes, birds, flora fauna. A low hazardous (Green label) biolarvicide. .

SHELF LIFE AND STORAGE : Minimum two (2) yrs. The product must be kept in its original properly labelled packing well sealed and stored in dry ventilated room at temperature not exceeding 45°C. Room should be well built, dry, well ventilated, well lit and of sufficient dimensions.

PACKING : 500 gm. 1 Kg. 5 Kg. in Trilaminated aluminium foil pouches packed in Cartons.
