Mosquitoes are disease vectors and demand effective control. ORIGIN uses water-based misting rather than thermal fogging, posing no risks to those with respiratory problems. The Ultra Low Volume (ULV) mist contains 2 active ingredients - Bti, a bacteria strain, kills mosquito larvae, while residual pesticide eliminates adult mosquitoes. The mist droplets remain suspended in the air for a long time, thus being an effective method of mosquito management for outdoor areas.
Rat-tailed maggots are the larvae of certain species of hoverflies belonging to the tribes Eristalini and Sericomyiini. A characteristic feature of rat-tailed maggots is a tube like, telescoping breathing siphon located at its posterior end. This acts like a snorkel, allowing the larva to breathe air while submerged. The siphon is usually about as long as the maggot's body. This organ gives the larva its common name.
