Mosquitoes[edit]

"The idea is to not leave any exposed water that could harbor breeding grounds for mosquitoes."

How well has this worked? I'm wondering if the mosquitoes might be able to find their way through the gaps and still breed in the water. --Chriswaterguy · talk 22:40, 2 August 2007 (PDT)


Depends on the size of gaps. Please see GEM_mosquito_control_FAQ#Q2. & GEM_mosquito_control_FAQ#Q7. & GEM_mosquito_control

I lived on the farm where this greywater system is in use and having seen it in action there are no gaps at all. It is only soil and water loving plants cleaning the greywater as it goes through the system. It eventually comes out the other side into a mulch basin covered in detritus, thus no exposed water, as the volume of water flowing through the system is far too small to saturate the mulch basin.
