 Dhaka North City Corporation claims that the tablet, called Muskiton, imported from the United Kingdom, will be effective for three months. This drug will work to kill larvae in water.
However, it will not cause harm to other aquatic animals. Entomologists are advised to conduct a pilot project before applying it on a large scale.
 Muskiton is said to be the fourth generation pesticide. If a mosquito tablet is dropped in a pond where mosquito breeding grounds are located, it will work for up to ninety days to neutralize the larvae.
 One drug is needed for per ten liters of water. Again, in a large pond, the head of the stick should be tied and submerged every ten feet.
 Entomologist Arifur Rahman said there is no excuse for this drug.
 The North City Corporation says the pesticide will simply break down the larvae’s top layer, the citin. However, it is not harmful to other aquatic animals.
 DNCC Deputy Chief Health Officer Lt. Colonel Mostafa Sarwar said, “We have tried it in different places.”
 Entomologist Touhid Uddin said, “If we don’t get any benefit by bringing so much money, then it is a loss.”
The DNCC says there will be no need to give larvicide in areas where mosquitoes are used. So it will save money and time.
