Mosquitoes and water recovered in ferry




View Jumpy » 15/07/08, 20:57

Hi,

I collect 2 x 500 l rainwater for garden use, clean exterior etc. like many people for less than a year

I notice the presence of mosquito larvae and I hesitate about the best approach to eliminate them

- roasting on the pipe / tank junction but they can pass through the pipe itself and go up once hatched / down to lay eggs / larvae

- insecticide, no.

- a natural anti larva (no frog in my tanks please) I was thinking of a grass or something like that

- another idea?

Thank you
J.

There is also the goldfish option.
It does not cost much, it resists the winter and it eats of
mosquito larvae.

Bonjour à tous

The goldfish is a great idea.
Aside from the winters, it also has the water turtle solution. It tackles anything that moves and benefits in a tank of less than 1 m3. My little turtle "Sophie" had doubled in size in 6 or 8 months, so much more was the diet .... : Mrgreen: it's better than the dried flies they are usually given.

Hi,

I have long experienced the same problem with water recovery. Even commercial salvagers, provided for this purpose, have lids not very waterproof that leave the pesky mosquitoes.

One day I tried to filter the water from my recovery barrels. I was really surprised by the amount of mosquito larvae in about 50 liters of water.

As I hate these animals, because they manage to ruin nights of sleep ..., I find a solution for my water recuperators.

I retrieve some old white curtains in which I cut the sizes necessary for the various collecting containers. Then I kindly asked my wife to sew me roughly elastics to hold them in place (The fabric of some curtains is quite resistant because it takes a few years).
This protection also coarsely filters the water (leaves, pieces of foam ...)

I made several that I distributed to my friends and family.

Here, my conscience is a little relieved and the mosquitoes still voracious ...

By cons, I do not know any green solution to eliminate the larvae. Sorry

for larvae, a solution well known in tropical countries, also used for the drinking water tank that is often on the roofs (no it does not taste ...): with a few drops of kerosene: it's ok spread the surface of the water and prevent the breathing of the larvae ... But we must renew regularly because it evaporates ... almost zero pollution ...

Hello,

You can also put a layer of polystyrene beads that stay on the surface will prevent mosquitoes from laying

Gaf has the water does not overflow otherwise goodbye the bibs : Mrgreen:
