Aquatain AMF Mosquito Film™

Aquatain AMF Liquid Mosquito Film™ – No Oil Needed

AMF is a polydimethylsiloxane-based (PDMS, silicone) formulation. It adds a thin silicone film on water bodies and constitutes a physical barrier to the reproductive capabilities of mosquitoes.

The low surface tension of the film prevents larvae from breathing as well as depositing their eggs on the water surface, drowning many of them in the attempt.

Silicone film is resilient to strong wind and wave action on open water, will spread quickly and completely around aquatic vegetation. And the film will not build up on the downwind side of a water body. It is resistant to ultraviolet degradation and remains effective for around 30 days.

Chemical Treatments

If the circumstances is too severe and the non-chemical means mentioned above are not enough, we also provides chemical control methods.

Cold fogging is a space treatment against flying adult. Though It cannot reach air spaces in areas obstructed by dense vegetation or other objects, it is easily to control its distance and coverage, and is more suitable to apply in urban areas. When the flies come into contact with the droplets (usually in 5-30 micron), they will be killed immediately.

Larvae oil is a petroleum distillate, when applies directly to water bodies, it will form a thin film on the water surface and kill larvae and pupae by suffocation. But the process requires extra care as it should never be applied onto water sources for human consumption.

The bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) infects and kills mosquito larvae. It must be consumed by the larvae and acts as a stomach poison, damaging mid-gut cells of mosquito larvae. It is highly selective, killing only mosquitoes and larvae of a few other related flies.

Communicable Diseases by Mosquito Problem

Female mosquitoes of nearly all species require blood from vertebrate animals to develop eggs, and many species bite people, pets, and livestock for this purpose. The most important consequence of this is the transmission of microorganisms that cause diseases.

Dengue fever is an acute mosquito-borne infection caused by the dengue viruses. This is found in tropical and sub-tropical regions around the world. For instance, dengue fever is an endemic illness in many countries in South East Asia. The principal type of mosquito that transmits the disease is called Aedes. The dengue viruses encompass four different serotypes, each of which can lead to dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever.

Japanese encephalitis Japanese encephalitis is a mosquito-borne disease caused by the Japanese encephalitis virus. The virus is transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes . The principal type of mosquito that transmits the disease is called Culex Tritaeniorhynchus. The disease occurs mainly in the rural and agricultural areas of Asia and the Western Pacific Region. It is a rare disease in Hong Kong. There are less than 10 cases reported in the past ten years.

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a group of malaria parasites, namely Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium ovale, and Plasmodium malariae. The principal type of mosquito that transmits the disease is called Anopheles. It is commonly found in many parts of tropical and sub-tropical areas where the climate is warm, like Africa, South-East Asia and South America.

Zika virus infection is a mosquito-borne disease caused by Zika virus. The infection may associate with adverse pregnancy (microcephaly) and neurological and autoimmune complications such as Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The World Health Organization has concluded that Zika virus infection during pregnancy is a cause of congenital brain abnormalities, including microcephaly, and that Zika virus is a trigger of GBS.

Characteristics of Mosquitoes (Including Midges)

Mosquito adults are small, flying, midgelike insects. Female mosquitoes can be differentiated from similar insects by the presence of a long slender proboscis that is adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood, and long slender wings that are covered with small scales.

In the immature stages, called larvae or wigglers, mosquitoes are usually black or dark brown and occur in nonmoving or nearly still water. Most mosquito larvae have a distinctive siphon or air tube at the rear of their bodies. The next stage is the pupal stage; pupae, called tumblers, are also aquatic and are small, roundish forms, usually black in color.

Up to the present, we have found 70 kinds of mosquitoes in Hong Kong. The most common kinds are Aedes Albopictus, Anopheles Minimus, Anopheles Jeyporiensis, Culex Pipiens Quinquefasciatus, Aedes Togoi and Culex Tritaeniorhynchus.

Life Cycle

The life cycles of mosquitoes vary widely from species to species. Some female mosquitoes lay single eggs on water surfaces; others lay single eggs on moist soil where later flooding is likely. Still other species lay batches of eggs, called rafts, 100 or more at a time on water surfaces. Eggs deposited on water surfaces usually hatch within a day or so, but eggs laid on soil surfaces do not hatch until flooding occurs, which may be months or even years later
