If winters are not too cold in your region you could use fishes called mosquito fish to control the mosquito larvae in your pond as they eat the larvae.

I don't think you will because bugs draw to standing water areas. If the water does not circulate it may become stagnant drawing more in. Possibly adding something to circulate the water or a filtering system may cut back on the bug supply.

The plus side is that your local frogs will enjoy eating them. You may be able to reduce your Mosquito population by adding some herbs around your pond. Lemon balm, and other kinds that may have a strong citrus like odor.


Most bugs don't like Lemon Balm. It is also eatable and is used in salads, and brewed in tea.

Other herbs create different possibilities. Like peppermint cut back on the mice. They don't like peppermint! The plus side is if a pond has fish, the water has a good supply of fertilizer. If you have sea weed, it is good for your tomato plants.

Good luck with your pond, & Happy Gardening!
