Aquatain AMF – Liquid Mosquito Film
Where there’s water, there are Mosquitoes. With Aquatain AMF – Liquid Mosquito Film you can control the problem in the breeding stage with a unique silicone-based liquid for mosquito control!
Aquatain 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, causing them to drown.

How does it work?
This system is a pure physical mode of extermination. Aquatain does not contain any toxic chemicals!
Its strong spreading action ensures that it will move around vegetation and other obstacles on the surface. Highly resistant to wind or wave action. It is also unaffected by rain falling on the surface.
How long will it last?
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 more than 65 countries. Many countries, including the European Union, have exempted the product from registration due to its physical action.
What does it use?
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 application equipment is not needed
- Spreads into areas of water which other larvicides can’t access
- Can be applied by the general public
- Efficacy is not affected in heavily polluted water
- 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. This means mosquitoes cannot develop a resistance to it. This is a very important advantage, as there is emerging evidence that commonly used chemical measures are becoming ineffective.
