Three Rivers Mosquito and Vector Control has employed the Western Mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) in certain areas to lessen mosquito populations and lessen the need of pesticides.
TRMVC previously used local mosquitofish collected in canals, to relocate to areas needing the biological control. Collecting Mosquitofish within the ditches is extremely time consuming, labor intensive and wastes valuable resources. In addition, over the last several years, those ditches have been over-fished and polluted with waste. In order to create a supply of Western Mosquitofish, and ensure they are not contaminated, TRMVC began breeding Gambusia affinis inhouse. The fish supply from our facility are plentiful, free from pollution and are sterile of evasive plants and other organisms.
If you have an area that may benefit from mosquitofish, contact our office.
