HAVANA, Aug 28 – LABIOFAM Business Group recommends that people use Bactivec, a natural larvicide used for biological control of different species of mosquito that spread tropical diseases.
Speaking to ACN news agency, Dr. Jose Antonio Fraga, director of the institution, noted that people can buy it in the national network of pharmacies at a reasonable price, and then apply it to the water, as directed, to prevent the proliferation of larvae.
He noted that the Bactivec is a natural product that does not affect fresh water’s quality or prevent its consumption , and it has a high efficiency and the approval of the World Health Organization.
When applied, people have no need to use chemical products, Fragasaid, and it protects people’s health if used properly.
Fraga stressed its usefulness to control diseases such as dengue, malaria, encephalitis, and other mosquito-borne diseases.
LABIOFAM indicates that its product works with proven effectiveness on larvae in their early stage of life, with high mortality between 24 and 48 hours after application.
Bactivec comes in 30 milliliters, one liter and 20 liter capacity plastic containers. Cuba’s summer’s high temperatures favor the larval activity and therefore Bactivec quick response.
