Pest Control -  Mosquito's

Mosquito  fish are available no charge; from, Maricopa County Vector Control @ 3220 W. Gibson Lane, Phoenix AZ

Goe South of Buckeye Rd. on 35th Ave to Gibson Lane: which' is the Sheriffs complex entrance.

Office is on the East end of the Sheriffs building in the back. Contact via Maricopa County West Nile Virus Hotline 602-273-0895.

I think they usually only give out 4-8 fish, but if you let them know you have an involved AP System they might give you more, after all, left unchecked we could produce lots of mosquitoes.

Thanks Jim Troyer

Good reminder and information, Robert!

I've never had mosquito larvae in my AP system, but I noticed today that we have a lot in our cattle troughs. We'll be starting with some feeder fish, then get mosquito fish next time we're out Phoenix way.

In one of my raft beds, I netted in a single scoop with a 4" net enough to raise mosquito fish. I bet there were a thousand.

No more, I put 40 mosquito fish distributed over 7 tanks. It will be interesting to see how fast they disappear.
