Do Ponds Attract Mosquitos?

You are currently viewing Do Ponds Attract Mosquitos?

A commonly asked question is “will my pond attract mosquitoes?”, the answer is NO. The ideal habitat for mosquitoes to lay their eggs and for the larvae to hatch is shallow, stagnant water. Therefore, you should not have to worry because a well-built pond should not have any stagnant water at all. All the Eco-system ponds we build here at TranquilityScapes are properly circulated and built to skim appropriately. On the slim off-chance mosquitoes happen to lay eggs in your pond, your fish will consider them as a treat and eat them. Whatever the fish miss, the rest will be sucked away by the skimmer.
