Larvicide Methods

There are a few main larvicide methods.  The earliest methods in the 19th century simply poisoned the entire water source.

Later, larvicides evolved into thin films of surface oil.  These were effective because mosquito larvae actually breath air.  Nearly all types need to return to the surface for air.  Though some actually cut into hollow water plants. The thin film makes it difficult for the mosquito to break through and breath.  A side benefit is these oils can make it difficult for pupae (the stage after larva) to break free of the water and fly off. Life Stages of a Mosquito  These oils are still in common use today.

More recently, bacteria have been found and cultured that target just mosquito larvae. These bacteria disrupt the gut of the larvae causing death.  This technique is a natural/organic certified method to kill mosquitoes.
