Eastern Mosquitofish, Gambusia holbrooki, for Control of Mosquito Larvae 3 are easy to operate. Trapping is done by baiting the trap and returning after sufficient numbers of fish are caught.

Baits vary and can be fish or pet feed, mashes based on oatmeal or bread, or canned fish such as jack mackerel or sardines (Crosby et al.

Where mosquito-borne diseases pose a threat to human health, and native fish are not suitable control agents (such as urban areas in Thailand and Venezuela) stocking water bodies with poeciliids (such as gambusia and guppies Lebistes reticulatus) may be one of the few means of mosquito control.

These poeciliids are well-suited to stagnant. Gambusia provides effective reductions of mosquitoes in a variety of isolated water features, there is a need to assess the potential use and applicability of native fish populations for vector control in portions of their natural habitat and created aquatic habitats adjacent to their habitat.

Our data suggest that the effectiveness of Gambusia affinis in controlling mosquitoes may be compromised if adult mosquitoes respond to fish stocking by shifting to nearby breeding sites that lack fish.

Fishes and Fisheries of Nevada. Nevada State Print Office, Carson City, Nevada. Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment. Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and the Zika virus.

Mosquito-control operations are targeted against three different problems. Abstract Qualitative risk assessment methodolo- gies were used to assess the risk of establishment and consequent impacts on native minnows and species of concern (SOC) associated with the intentional or unintentional introduction of the mosquito biological control agent, Gambusia affinis, to various Montana watersheds.

Mosquito biological control of Gambusia affinis is one of the best and most natural solutions available without the use of harmful chemicals. Mosquito fish are a small live-bearing minnow closely related to the common guppy.

Even cannibals like those Gambusia will prefer browsing on live foods to their fry. Dambusia, as some aquarists and wildlife people call them have been used for mosquito control in places where local species would have been better employed. It turns out that those Gambusia often prefer the fry of other fishes to mosquito larvae.

ABSTRACT: The use of the mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis, for rice field mosquito control at the rate of g/ha ( Ib/acre) did not affect the population densities of copepods, ostracods, Corixids, dragonflies, Belostomatids and aquatic beetles but did reduce the densities of cladocerans, mayflies, damselflies, Notonectids and Chironomids.

The potential of larvivorous fish in mosquito control programs has been recognised for some time and one of the most commonly used fish for this purpose has been the mosquitofish, Gambusia holbrooki (Girard).
