Summer Time - Time for Gnats Is there anything in this world that is more enjoyable than spending a summer evening in a Natural Swimming Pool? We enjoy the slowly approaching dusk, the sparkling of the day’s last sunbeams on the water, sitting under a canopy of stars by candlelight, and listening to the chirping of the crickets and the croaking of the frogs. But, there is one small insect that may disrupt peaceful outdoor moments: the gnat. The gnat is the enemy of grill parties and evenings in the garden, and they are nearly everywhere in summer time. Since gnats breed in water, it’s no wonder our customers worry that an NSP would attract even more of them. Don’t worry! An NSP will not increase the gnat population in your garden. In fact, if the ecology of the NSP is in balance there will be many natural predators like frogs, dragonflies, and green lacewings to feed on gnats and their larvae. Researchers have found another valuable inhabitant of the NSP who helps to lower the number of gnats: a small aquatic crustacean called daphnia. We have reported about daphnia a few times in previous Newsletters. Daphnia are very important for the ecological balance in the NSP. They feed on algae and also consume the same nutrients as the gnat larvae. Studies have verified that because of the competition for food, gnats and daphnia can’t colonize the same body of water successfully.
