Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) is an effective larvicide to control mosquito populations, with negligible environmental impacts.

We found no negative effects of Bti on total phytoplankton density and community diversity, though diatoms tended to be replaced by drought-resistant algae.
