A Fish Story: Free Mosquito-Eating Minnows in Rockland County

By
Real Estate Mortgage Broker

Have you seen the signs posted all over Rockland County?   These intriguing postings are located on many exit ramps of the Palisades Interstate Parkway and on most major roads throughout the County.  All are advertising Free Mosquito-Eating Fish? 

I only wish that I could come up with an advertising campaign this compelling!  Of course, it has the word "free," which always helps, and "mosquito-eating fish," which is kind of mysterious.  So, I simply had to investigate further.

Rockland County Mortgage CompanyWhat I found is that the County of Rockland is offering free Fathead Minnows to county residents.  Apparently, mosquitoes like to lay eggs, which turn into larvae, in moist areas of standing water.  The larvae eventually mature into mosquitoes with wings that annoy and attack us at barbecues.  But, a  favorite meal of fathead minnows happens to be mosquito larvae.  Rockland County is advising residents to place these free fish in areas with a minimum of 8" to 12" of standing water (not streams or rivers).  These heroic fish, the plan is, will help control the County's pesky mosquito population.

By any chance, are there any fish that mow lawns and do minor landscaping work???  Now that's a fish I can "get on-board with!".

I'd rather take a chance on fish with an appetite for mosquitoes than take a chance with nasty chemicals. Here's hoping those fishy little guys get a lot of new homes.
