Re: [RC] jWest Nile Vaccine, where? - Barbara McCrary

Will mosquito fish survive raids from raccoons?  We put some goldfish in our
water trough many years ago, and all that remained was a smile on the face
of the raccoon.

Okay, I knew it would click in my mind at some point!  The mosquito fish
are
Gambusia affinis.....check with your ag dept. and see if your county has a
mosquito
abatement program. Often these fish are offered free to the public.  They
do
quite
well in water troughs. They are fairly smally, guppy size.

They are still saying the best precautions are vaccinating and getting
rid
of standing water around barns.  They did say there are some type of
fish
you can even put in the stock tanks that eat misqueto larve.  I
haven't
quite gotten that one figured out yet.

They are known as "mosquito fish", I forget the species name; but can
call
Mosquito abatement
if you want it.  Our Mosquito Abatement dept (we live near a big lake),
gives them out for free.
