Hello everyone! My name is Keith and I live just south of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I just bought a house almost a year ago, and I'm doing a lot of landscaping. I found this forum and everyone seems so nice and willing to help. I'm excited to be a part of this forum!

Oh and I suppose I can ask my question here? If I'm in the wrong spot redirect me. I'm really new to gardening and don't have a clue about anything. I'm putting in a pond, and I know it's going to bring a lot of mosquitos, so I was thinking if I could plant some carnivorous plants around it that would help control it. I don't know if it's possible with our winters and soil and all that but I'm looking for suggestions on how I can control the bugs without having an ugly zapper.

Skeeters don't like moving water so a fountain helps alot. Also fish in your pond will eat the larva. That should get you down to a manageable skeeter population.

Of course with my arms covered in skeeter bites I think one is way to many of those mean little suckers.
