Recreate a Vanishing Ecosystem : The Eastern Vernal Pool

Featured

Step 4: Maintainance

Picture of Maintainance
Once a month, throw in part of a mosquito dunk. They are very specific to dipterans and won't affect the ecosystem unduly.

If you live where it freezes allow the pool to dry up during the late summer and refill with spring melt, in the south the pool can be kept filled year round.

Be sure to keep leaves from filling the pool completely and most importantly NEVER ADD FISH.
