[RC] Mosquito dunks - submerged - Victoria Thompson

After several people replied to my inquiry about horses eating the mosquito dunk rings and some of their inventive ways to prevent their horses from eating them, I decided to just tie the thing to a rock and drop it to the bottom of the water trough where I'm pretty sure Numb Nuts won't venture. Past experience sending Emails to companies has always gotten me slow replies, so that was my reasoning for going to all of you first instead of the company. However, Kat mentioned that perhaps the things don't work if submerged and I should ask the company. I thought to myself that this might be a good idea even if the answer is slow in coming at least I'd be trying to do something in the meanwhile. So, late last night I fired off an Email to the Summit Chemical Company inquiring as to whether or not the rings would still work submerged. Well, much to my surprise when I hopped on the 'puter early this morning there was a reply from the company, and it wasn't one of those automatic responses that you always end up getting either. To make a long story short the rings do not work fully submerged. I was advised to place the ring in some sort of cage that can be attached to the side of the trough so Numb Nuts won't eat it. So, my new question regarding these little rings is, "Any ideas for a cage?"

Inquiring minds want to know.
