Mosquitos

Oops… I thought that since I’ve just filled the pond recently, the chemicals in the water would keep it free of those nasty mosquitos.  But when I was taking a look at the pond earlier, I saw all of their wiggly little bodies swimming about in the water.  I was going to hold off til spring to buy fish for the pond…. but I realize I need some preditors that are on my side so I ran out to Merrifield Garden Center and got two shubunkins and two comets to hunt down the little bloodsuckers.

I also recently got a Beta from my dad… we didn’t have any food for him but I did a little research and found they love mosquito larva.  One cup of pool water had a couple dozen of the scrumptious treats.  Sandy and I enjoyed watching the beta swim around his bowl chasing down those little critters.
