Keeping Water Gardens Mosquito-Free

Products that control mosquito larvae are available to consumers. Items like mosquito pucks contain Bacillusthuringiensis spp. israelensis, which is a bacterium that will kill mosquito larvae (but has no effect on eggs or pupae).

These alternatives do the job on a permanent and ongoing basis, while also enhancing the beauty and enjoyment of your pond.
