Ponds are the coolest. This one even had some fish in it. It still boggles my mind that the fish don’t get eaten by cats, raccoons, etc.

  • I also refer to these as:
    Mosquito breading grounds
    and best of all
    Rat’s water hole – rats need water too (don’t they?)

  • The fish really do eat the larvae, and mosquitos landing to lay eggs – when there are fish in it. I suspect the owner has a line on a cheap source of goldfish and just re-stocks. The rat thing gives me the creeps, though.

  • Ponds and waterfalls are awesome, but I do wonder about attracting rats.

  • we have had a decent sized pond and waterfall for the last four years and never had a mosquito problem — they don’t seem to lay eggs in moving water and our fish eat whatever lands in the pond. and i have only ever seen one rat, which was visiting from my next door neighbor’s abandoned house.
