Product details

Aquatain AMF Liquid Mosquito Film

Aquatain AMF is a unique silicone-based liquid for mosquito control.

It spreads across the surface of standing water - even large water bodies – and forms a very thin film. As silicones have a very low surface tension, the film prevents pupae and larvae from attaching themselves at the surface while attempting to breathe, thereby causing them to drown

The product has a purely physical action and does not contain any toxic chemicals.

Its strong spreading action ensures that it will move around vegetation and other obstacles on the surface, and it is highly resistant to wind or wave action. It is also unaffected by rain falling on the surface.

Extensive trials around the world have shown that Aquatain AMF is effective on the surface for up to 4 weeks.

Aquatain AMF is approved for sale in 60 countries including Australia. In April 2015, the European Commission formally exempted the product from registration in the European Union due to its physical action.

Silicones - the active ingredients in Aquatain AMF - are one of the most widely used polymers in the world. They are used in consumer products such as shampoos and lipsticks, medicinal and pharmaceutical products, industrial products such as waterproofing compounds, and even in food applications. 

How Does Aquatain AMF Compare To Other Mosquito Control Products?

Unlike bed nets and chemical spraying, which are aimed at adult mosquitoes, Aquatain AMF is aimed at the mosquito breeding stages and is therefore complementary to these methods.

Aquatain AMF also has advantages over chemical and biological larvicides:

  • special equipment is not needed, and it can be applied by the general public
  • its efficacy is not affected in heavily polluted water
  • it has an impact on all stages of the breeding cycle – not just on one stage
  • unlike chemical larvicides, it is non-toxic.

In addition, as Aquatain AMF has a physical action rather than a chemical action, mosquitoes cannot develop a resistance to it. This is a very important advantage, as there is emerging evidence that commonly used mosquito control measures are becoming ineffective.
