VectoMax FG Biological Mosquito Larvicide, Valent

Quick overview VectoMax FG is an advanced biological mosquito larvicide that combines the time-proven and environmentally compatible bacterial active ingredients Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis and Bacillus sphaericus 2362 into a single microparticle.

VectoMax FG Advanced Biological Mosquito Larvicide combines Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis and Bacillus sphaericus 2362 into a single microparticle.


VectoMax FG Biological Mosquito Larvicide 
(formerly CG) is an advanced biological mosquito larvicide based on BioFuse™ technology — a patented formulation and manufacturing process that combines the time-proven and environmentally compatible bacterial active ingredients Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (strain AM65-52) and Bacillus sphaericus 2362 (strain ABTS 1743) into a single microparticle. The mosquito larvae get a dose of a carefully selected ratio of both toxins when VectoMax particles are ingested.


Consisting of only Bti, Bs, and food-grade (USEPA list 4) inert ingredients, VectoMax FG has received approval for application in organic crops and sensitive habitats. The product has a potency of 50 Bs International Toxin Units (Bs ITU) per milligram against Culex quinquefasciatus larvae. The size, shape, and density of VectoMax FG lessen the potential for off-target application due to aerial drift and enable good penetration of dense vegetation.


Microbial mosquito larvicides have gained considerable acceptance in recent years. The value of Bti, strain AM65-52 and Bs 2362, strain ABTS-1743 to mosquito-control programs worldwide is well-established. These unique strains of Bti and Bs each offer unique advantages relative to chemical insecticides, and they offer relative safety to humans and non-target organisms. Bti provides broad-spectrum activity against mosquitoes, rapid control, and low potential for resistance; while Bs exhibits extended residual control, efficacy in polluted water, and high target specificity.
