Title: A Field Test of the Potential of a Local Flatworm, Dugesia Tigrina, for Biological Control of Mosquitoes in Temporary Pools
Author: Learned, L. W.; Meyer, H.J.
Description: An Indigenous flatworm species, Dugesia tigrina (Girard), was tested for use as a biological control of mosquitoes In temporary pools In North Dakota. Pools with mosquito populations were stocked with flatworms at densities ranging from 100 to 1000 per pool. Mosquito populations were monitored throughout the season. Flatworm populations were assessed at the end of the season. Flatworm populations increased over the season but mosquito populations were not effectively controlled by the flatworms.
