Can I use Dipel to kill mosquito larvae in my pond?

I can't get Mosquito dunks any where in Aust but I have read online that Dipel contains the Bacillus Thuringiensis subspecies Israelensis (BTI). that is said to be in the mosquito dunks and will kill the lave but not harm my fish. Is this true? My pump that keeps water movement in the pond will be fixed this Friday so that will help avoid long term issues but in the short term I have a problem.

Hi Sam,

Unfortunatley we don't have registration for Dipel to be used in that way and we don't have a product that will control mosquitos in a garden situation. https://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/freshwater-fish-stocking/native-fish-for-mosquito-control
