For our July 2021 Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest, Washington Gardener is giving away a kit containing one 6-pack of Mosquito Dunks®, one bag of Mosquito Bits, 1 pint (concentrate) of Summit Year-Round Spray Oil, and one hose-end spray bottle of Summit Caterpillar & Webworm Control to one lucky winner.
To prevent mosquitoes from breeding in places where water collects (including ponds, bird baths, animal watering troughs, gutters, ditches, drainage pipes, and rain barrels), you can use a sustained-release mosquito control product such as Mosquito Dunks that contains BTI to kill mosquito larvae. BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) is a bacterium that kills mosquito larvae naturally before they can become disease-spreading adults.
To enter to win a 6-pack of Mosquito Dunks, bag of Mosquito Bits, pint (concentrate) of Summit Year-Round Spray Oil, and hose-end spray bottle of Summit Caterpillar & Webworm Control, send an email to WashingtonGardenerMagazine@gmail.com by 5:00pm on Saturday, July 31, with “Mosquito Bits-Dunks” in the subject line. In the body of the email, tell us what your favorite article was in the July 2021 issue and why. Include your full name and mailing address. The winners will be announced by August 2.
The contest prize pack winners are Madeline Caliendo and Edward Constable of Washington, DC.
