Hi
I've got a small ornamental pond that I fill up for my ducks (probably 5 feet long, couple of feet deep). There is no aeration....I usually just empty and refill cause you know - ducks!

However this year.....mosquito larvae seem to breed super fast...I was wondering what I could use to treat the water that would be safe for the ducks. I've heard vegetable oil...dishwashing soap....any ideas?

thanks

I would consider minnows or goldfish - before you say "but the ducks will eat them," I think so too, but at the same time, if you place an upside-down milk crate in the pond, the fish could escape into that. Would the crate be a hazard for the ducks? Just thinking out loud, here.
