    how do you avoid mosquitoes in your garden bowls?

  • Michaela says:

    Hi Nancy, What a great question! I use Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis). This is a naturally occurring bacteria which produces toxins. Those toxins are lethal to certain fly larvae, including mosquitoes (also gnats and blackflies). It is completely organic, available in water-soluable tablets, and harmless to non-target species as well as all amphibians, birds, reptiles and mammals. Sometimes the cakes are called “mosquito dunks”Gardener’s Supply Company sells organic mosquito control rings (linked here). I highly recommend them! Thanks for leaving the good question, Nancy ;)
