Only my opinion,I have no proof, but I think it is not going to keep diluted. In fact, I prefer to use a new supply yearly. In use it is most effective against larvae in the earliest growth stage and to catch that stage I will use it weekly for up to three weeks. Al

Funny I just mixed some of this earlier today and was wondering the same thing. The smell is unbearable.
