It is certain that the method of empty containers requires good attendance; with predators ad hoc inside, the question is solved elegantly on this point, except that we must deal with fish ... :frown:

La mosquito fish is the unstoppable solution! It is a very small fish (5-7 cm max), very resistant and very effective.
I always leave some in my garden water reserves: as long as it does not freeze or the reserve is completely empty, they survive and even reproduce ... 3 cm deep, that's enough!

And in addition, they are very affectionate, if so!
In the summer, when I go to soak in the pond, they love to come and do kisses. :D

It seems vaguely to have already seen the mention, but for the tropics, I did not know its possible acclimatization in our countries.
The gambusie seems well adapted to a pond and it would be in this case an excellent solution. Aside from mosquito larvae, I suppose it makes its honey from all the insects that fall into the pond?

thanks for the idea of ​​goldfish ... i have some water tank that attract the mosquito

there is one that serves as a pool: there is only when there is enough chlorine that there is more mosquito, but I do not like chlorine

I have the impression that this year it will be serious for the mosquito: there was no cold this winter ... with the rain of these last days all the puddle are already full of mosquito

It has been found in the Landes ponds under the local name of "fat belly" for a very long time where it is also a forage fish of choice for the delicious predators such as pikeperch and black bass!
The only time I've "lost" a few is because they got stuck in 20cm of water in a tub in winter ... And it froze hard enough and long enough to freeze half the volume of water.
Really resistant, and very prolific. To the point where a female, left alone for one year in one of these famous bins (100 L), ended up having a litter of about thirty fry, only females. Parthenogenesis?

She is voracious but her mouth is small. It can probably unbalance an existing ecosystem, but for an artificial pond, it does the job and still leaves room for many frogs and aquatic insects.

I plan to limit gastronomically the population this year, it should not be bad, slightly jumped with a persillade!

Chatelot, you write:

I doubt that the cold weather is very limiting mosquito populations ... In the boreal regions they are very (very!) Present.

it's true and it's often the opposite, in fact a cold winter does not bother insects because they hide, but the cold weather keeps it from certain diseases and fungi that attack insects, so they are painstaking.

unlike a mild winter or insects that are attacked by these diseases.

It's great: we learn every day (between people of good company, of course, those who have experienced some excesses on this forum know what I want to talk about and if others have been spared, good for them ...!)
