CULITHOR Granular Mosquito Growth Regulator
CULITHOR Granular Mosquito Growth Regulator uniquely uses our Intelligent Granular Microencapsulation Technology™ to provide controlled, long-term prevention of adult mosquito emergence. CULITHOR is an innovative approach to mosquito larval management programs providing effective control of both surface feeding and bottom feeding larvae. Intelligent Granular Microencapsulation Technology™ is a cutting edge process. A grain of sand is coated with carbon and gypsum containing our unique Controlled Release Active Micro-capsules™ (CRAM-capsules). The CRAM-capsules are 5.5 μm diameter, liquid core capsules with a natural chitosan shell. These contain the active ingredient, (S)-methoprene, which stops the growth of mosquito larvae to prevent adult mosquito emergence.
The CULITHOR Granules sink to the bottom where the outer gypsum layer slowly dissolves, gradually releasing the CRAM-capsules. These capsules take several days to rise to the surface during which time they continuously release the (S)-methoprene, ensuring a more even distribution of the active through the water.
CULITHOR can be used in freshwater swamps and marshes, salt and freshwater lagoons, salt marshes, mangrove swamps, estuarine areas, woodland pools, or any
natural water-holding features; in both open water situations or where water is obscured by vegetation. In fact anywhere where mosquito breeding is a current or
