Influences of aquatic plants on colonization of artificial ponds by mosquitoes and their insect predators

Influences of aquatic plants on colonization of artificial ponds by mosquitoes and their insect predators

Canadian Entomologist 112(8): 793-796

The aquatic plants Utricularia minor L., Lemna minor L. and Elodea canadensis Rich. in Michx. were tested for their effects on the colonization of artificial ponds by mosquitoes and their predators. During the 11 wk of sampling there were significantly fewer mosquito eggs, and hence mosquito larvae, in the plant-filled ponds than in plantless control ponds, and more predators in the Utricularia and Elodea ponds than in the plantless and Lemna ponds.
