'Damn'busia - Gambusia> mosquito fish as invasives:

The mosquito dunk: It's pre-emergent'donuts', [not real ones], or granules, that contain Bt, a targeted bacteria, that kills [mostly] mosquitos. There may be a problem with this, now too, errg. [bees, butterflies]


So,
Before you do anything else, check with your local, state or county, agricultural extention service. They have the best and latest, advice for your area. They should be able to recommend your best options.

Dang, this was supposed to be a follow up to the end of Herbie's post. People were trying to reccommend mosquito controls, For a bog.
The fish, invasives both, can cause a lot of trouble, especially, if they are hardy.
