We are one of the country's largest growers of farm-raised Mosquito fish. This environmentally important fish used for controlling mosquitoes and their larvae is sold commercially only through our company. We typically offer this fish to most government mosquito control programs and golf courses. Males are always smaller than the female. The female is always larger than the male and since this is not an egg layer fish, but rather a "live-bearing" animal, the female may have what appears to be a balloon belly from time to time just before birthing frye.
Biological Mosquito Control info
Biological mosquito control methods are one of the mainstays in protecting the public from mosquitoes and the transmission of mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquito biological control of Gambusia affinis is one of the best and most natural solutions available. Mosquito fish are a small live-bearing minnow closely related to the common guppy. Used in mosquito control in the USA since 1915, these fish are vivacious consumers of mosquito larvae and pupae and can survive in varying water conditions. Because mosquito fish are surface feeders, they are extremely efficient mosquito predators. Mosquito fish have been said to consume upwards of 80-100 mosquito larvae per day, and are capable of quickly populating a source if conditions are favorable. The fish are placed in a variety of permanent and semi-permanent fresh water habitats, including dirty swimming pools, water troughs, rice fields, golf course ponds, and wetlands.
