Mossies in my water feature

Posted: 29/07/2013 at 11:47

Hi there wonder if anyone can help. I have a small water feature in my  garden that i keep finding mosquitos in. I thought keeping it on would help but the water doesnt move in all parts of it. I also have pets so can not put anything toxic in. Can anyone reccomend something to kill and keep them out?

hi there,


have a v small garden mostly decked with some border bedding so dont really have room for a composter. any recommendations on how to use fallen leaves rather then just throwing them into the garden waste sack?

i think you spend spring and summer doing a lot of work in the garden and then feel that you become redundant for a long period over winter

hiya, not sure of the variety without trying to find the pack. but that sounds like a relief.the branches are breaking/weakening so thought they were dying. but in the past thats happened and ive just tied them up straight.- thought it might be blight or something as i had toms that turned brown at the top and thought this is what was happening here.

i did wonder why ive had more of a problem then any other year. I also found that they get through my bedding plants in a night. Sorry but ive taken to using the slug pellets. I have to scatter them carefully as i have pets and do not want them poisoned but they totally work. except the clear up of dead bodies is not nice. What i dont like about them is they seem to attract them more. are these slugs etc that are already there or are they coming from afar for the pellets? hmm i dont know.

i mixed them with organic variety which stated on the pack that with these they crawl off and die so no need for carcass clear up so dont know if the organic ones work or not.

I do feel bad. but after all the effort you go through to grow your own.. i really dont want them ruining all my hard work
