As well as having pebble steps and aquatic plants in the pond, have you plenty of long grass/cover plants on the banks around the pond?

Unless there's somewhere for them to hide they won't even make it to your pond - the predators will get them.

I found you had to take them for a while before it became effective, but it did really help me.  Some people say they're useless for them tho'.   I got mine from Holland & Barrett.  

Hope it helps you ... hate hot flushes ...... mine were nearly always around 1 or 2 in the morning, drenching the bed with sweat.  It can also be a symptom of under active thyroid so if you've not had yours checked it's worth talking to your GP.

Yomping is/was a term used by soldiers to describe trekking over rough ground with all your gear on your back - think it first became well-known during the Falklands war.

Hot flushes?  Try Black Cohosh

Rosemary cuttings will be fine in a sheltered spot outside. Use plenty of grit in the compost and you'll find it strikes quickly and grows away well.
