Effects of Mortein on Marine Life

Postby ronit1097 » Sat Oct 03, 2020 3:52 am

How harmful are products such as Mortein for aquatic and marine life and biodiversity? Does is it affect fishes and even algae the same way it affects mosquitoes? And if it is harmful what can be done to ensure that products like Mortein only affect mosquitoes and not the aquatic life when added to water ?

Here is the material safety data sheet (MSDS), which on page 8 describes its environmental toxicity. Forms like this exist for all chemicals used in science and most for daily life! Just a click away
