    My understanding is the manufacturer has stopped making that product now. Not sure when this happened so may still be available in some stores.

    that is what I've found before posting previous message
    Portion of that ring most likely consists of an inactive ingredient (or several) that keeps/glues the endospores of that bacillus together. That ingredient could raise the TDS and buffer pH as well. But if you use a little you should be fine

    I had gnat problem in my Utrics and I just used a knife and made some scrapings of mosquito dunks. All you need is a' starter' culture of B. thuringensis. If there's food, in this case gnat larvae, they'll multiply. You don't need a whole lot.

    If it is any help, I keep mosquito dunks in my rain barrel and the water from there hasn't harmed any of my plants (that I can see). I've never used it on pings but i have used physan on neps and dews without problems.

    Mosquito dunks are FINE. I've been using them few a number of years now.
