Monday Mosquito Eater

This week’s Mosquito Eater is actually a Mosquito Eater – Eater.

I was not aware that Hornets were insectivores.  Learn something new every day… at least if you try.

Supposedly one of the biggest mosquito eaters is a little fish known as Gambusia.

These little fish eat lots of mosquito larvae.  It looks like you can buy them online if you have one of those little ponds in your yard.  I can’t guarantee they would survive here in Missouri though.
