A question has come up regarding this product both in regards to effectiveness and, more importantly, impact on birds that might ingest mosquitoes that had fed on this product, which is said to contain nothing more than yeast, salt, and sugar. Somehow feeding on this product it is claimed will kill mosquitoes before they can breed. Their website is shown below: https://spartanmosquito.com/ Thanks. Jim

A product containing just yeast, salt, and sugar will not kill mosquitoes. We could not find any information on active ingredients in this product. We do not have any research data about it.

The best way to control mosquitoes is to reduce standing water sites where they breed. You can find additional information about controlling mosquitoes -- what works and what doesn't -- here on our website. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/controlling-mosquitoes
