Comparative analysis of the predatory habits of Gambusia and Poecilla fishes in environmental control of mosquitoes


Author(s): Dr. Sudhir Kumar Rawat

Abstract: Adult Gambusia could eat up to 150 mosquito larvae in an eight-hour period. This makes them an excellent biological tool for mosquito control because they eat the larvae before they have a chance to develop into adult mosquitoes. However, the use of Gambusia and Poecilla /guppy fish as biological weapons to control mosquito menace have had also been reported to have the opposite effect as well.
