[Product description] ZERO-MOZ is a tablet combining a chemical substance, which controls mosquito larvae, and a kind of natto bacteria. The chemical substance is a comparatively stable aromatic compound that is similar to a juvenile hormone. ZERO-MOZ is applied to a place where target mosquitos emerge or a puddle or pond where there are mosquito larvae. It affects their hormone system and disturbs reproduction, incubation, and other growth factors. [Intellectual property] ZERO-MOZ dissolves slowly in water (this mechanism of slow dissolution is patented) and continues to suppress the breeding of mosquitoes for a long time.
