Is also an effective larvicide. The rate of application will depend on a number of factors including depth of the water, length of persistence required and species to be controlled. Most other mosquitoes larvicides require an increase in dose of up to 10 times when used in polluted or highly organic water. ‘Actellic’ 50EC needs to be applied only at 1.25 times the rate recommended for clean water.
