Myth Buster: Water Features = Mosquitoes

It is a very common misconception that having a water feature will result in more mosquitoes. This is great news since as you may have noticed, Edmonton is currently the mosquito capital of Canada! The reason for this is all of the standing water we have this year due to massive amounts of snow melt. The key here is standing water. Mosquitoes tend to inhabit and lay eggs in wet areas but if there is water movement they can't survive in the water. In water features such as ponds, waterfalls and gurgling boulders there is always moving water so you don't have to worry about any extra mosquitoes.
