What about mosquitos?

The single best way to reduce mosquito populations in a residential or home garden setting is to remove unwanted pools or collections of standing water. In rain gardens, ponds or other intentional variants of standing water listed as habitat elements, use Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) tablets or dissolving donuts. These are an organic, all natural, biological insecticide that targets mosquito larva. These can be purchased from most professional nurseries or ordered online.
