MOSQUTIOFISH

Gambusia affinis

Because of their great appetite for mosquito larvae and pupa, mosquitofish are very effective in preventing the production of mosquitoes in ornamental ponds, water gardens, horse troughs, non-maintained swimming pools or any other water source that does not connect to streams, creeks or other waterways. It is important to remember that most of the tap water in Santa Clara County is now being treated with chloramines (not chlorine) which are toxic to fish. Water used for fish must be treated in a manner appropriate to remove both the chlorine and ammonia components of the chloramines. Chemicals designed to remove chloramines are available at pet, and fish supply stores, as well as some variety stores. Mosquito eating fish are available free of charge to all Santa Clara County residents. To order mosquitofish, contact the Santa Clara County Vector Control District at the number listed below or use our website. For more information regarding products available for mosquito control or to order some mosquitofish, contact the
