Clarke CocoBear Guide
Larvicidal oils. They are one of the simplest mosquito
control tools available...yet they are also the most
overlooked. Effective, easy to use — they came into
use in the 50’s in the form of diesel fuel and kerosene.
But with the introduction of CocoBear® from Clarke,
now you have a superior choice!
CocoBear®, a patented formulation, was three years in development
at Clarke. We were driven by the objectives of creating a consistent, high
performance larvicidal oil option without heavy reliance on petroleum
oil. The result: a formulation that reduced petroleum distillates from
98.7% to 10%, compared to predecessor GoldenBear.
