UPL Philippines Inc. Introduces Natural DT Larvicide

Mosquito bites can also lead to danger to human life, Dengue and Malaria may cause the loss of our loved ones; Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Symptoms typically begin three to fourteen days after infection. These may include a high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash. Recovery generally takes two to seven days.

Mosquito bites are the itchy bumps that appear after mosquitoes use their mouthparts to puncture your skin and feed on your blood. The bump usually clears up on its own in a few days. Occasionally a mosquito bite causes a large area of swelling, soreness, and redness. This type of reaction, most common in children, is sometimes referred to as skeeter syndrome.

Natular® is the first and only complete portfolio of larvicides with a naturally derived active ingredient. All formulations, developed and manufactured exclusively by Clarke, contain the active ingredient spinosad, a product derived from a naturally occurring soil bacterium. Natular is the first public health larvicide in the IRAC Class 5 chemical classification, delivering a unique mode of action that works on all four stages of mosquito larvae. This makes it an excellent tool to suppress mosquito populations before they hatch while helping avoid or fight resistance. Simply stated, Natular is like no other larvicide on the market.

Natular DT
  • A slow-release, multiple-brood, bi-layer tablet larvicide containing the Active Ingredient, Spinosad.
  • Spinosad is derived from the fermentation of Saccharopolyspora spinosa, a naturally occurring soil organism. It is classified by the US EPA as a Reduced Risk Pesticide and the only Reduced Risk larvicide for mosquito control.
  • Natular DT provides a short burst of spinosad followed by a slow release of the pesticide, making it ideal for domestic water supplies.
  • Chikungunya, or Zika.
  • To be used in governmental mosquito control programs, by professional pest control applicators, or in other mosquito control operations
Each Natular DT tablet can treat 208 liters (55 gallons) of water for more than 60 days.

Application Directions
  • NATULAR® DT is for use in artificial containers used for water collection to control the mosquito larvae of container breeding mosquitoes.
  • Artificial water containers may include drums, storage tanks, jars, rooftop catchments, ornamental fish ponds, ornamental pools or fountains, unused swimming pools, birdbaths, old tires, flowerpots and urns, water gardens, floor drains, roof gutters, and other water-holding receptacles.
  • Draining or discarding small containers that hold water is the most effective method for preventing mosquito breeding. To treat artificial water containers that cannot be drained or discarded, use 1 tablet to treat up to 192 liters (50 gallons).
  • Reapply after 60 days as needed.
Restrictions: Do not apply directly to treated, finished drinking water supply systems. Do not apply to waters that drain into public waterways.
