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). While they are effective, they must be replaced regularly. There are easier, more natural ways to keep mosquitoes at bay, including using plants that block bugs and fish that love to munch on insects and their larvae. These alternatives do the job on a permanent and ongoing basis, while also enhancing the beauty and enjoyment of your pond.
