Bacillus sphaericus is an obligate aerobe bacterium used as a larvicide for mosquito control of the Anopheles and Culex genera. It is on the other hand ineffective on the Aedes mosquito genus. It forms spherical endospores, which the mosquito larvae swallow and get infected from. Bacillus sphaericus is a gram positive bacterium, with rod shaped cells that form chains.
