    Stock your pond with fish. That’s
    the easiest way to get rid of the larvae.

    Go to a pet store and buy a couple of goldfish. They are a very

    hearty fish, and they will eat the larvae. I haven't bought goldfish

    in a very long time, but I can't see a couple of goldfish costing

    more than $5, if that much. Plus, you will want to get some goldfish

    feed for after they eat all the larvae. The fish will be sold in a

    bag, sealed with water in it, and air. Float the bag in the pond for

    about half an hour so the water will get to the same temperature,

    then just open the bag and pour out the fish.

    <div style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;">If you don't have fish in it put a few drops of bleach in it, you don't need much. It will also help control algae.

    Do you have the pump running? You should not have larvae if the water is circulation...maybe you don't have enough circulation. Also, remember the fish will need the water moving for oxygen for them, without proper water movement they will suffocate.

    Go online and buy some bacillus thurogenisis It's eight to ten dollars. It is the active ingredient in the pellets that go in yoyr birdbath.
