Ditching the pesky mosquito Srnithsonian News Service Photo by Lawrence Howe Entomologist Cyrus Lesser Inspects one of the ditches cut into a Maryland marsh to control mosquitoes. (continued from page IA) ca--the mosquito transmits dog heartworm and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, a sometimes deadly disease, which not only afflicts horses and mules but also may be transmitted to man. The Davis Island project involved cutting ditches ap- proximately 3 feet wide and from 2 to 3 feet deep throughout the marsh to in- terconnect mosquito breeding sites. This allowed predatory fish to reach and devour mosquito larvae and, at the same time, removed stagnant water. The key to the procedure was connecting all of the potential mosquito breeding sites, something that wasn't done when parallel ditching was in vogue. The scientists studied four areas having similar vegetation and drainage. Three of the sites were ditched and the fourth served as a control. In the hope of providing additional habitat for wildlife, they also created Aquaculture report issued The growing demand for fish andsedfood In the United States has prompted the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economics and Statistics Service to release a new report that gives economic data on aquaculture and analyzes the supply, demand, and price factors affecting the industry. small shallow ponds coupled ecological impact of extensive to the ditching network in each ditching.

"But," he adds, "these unwanted changes can be avoided by controlling the water table levels. And other than these adverse vegetation changes at one site, the management method has not led to any problems with either the vegetation or water quality in the adjacent estuary." In addition to eliminating the need for repeated, costly applications of insecticides, FACTO the non-parallel ditching method has pleased con- servationists. "The new ditching technique is OUTLET especially beneficial to waterfowl," Dr. Vagn Flyger, a wildlife biologist with the STORE University of Maryland, says. "It provides them with access to food, and the small ponds created throughout the marshes are ideal resting spots for migratory birds." Researchers are hopeful that the results of the Davis Island study can be applied elsewhere in Maryland and other areas to promote and improve open-marsh water management. In addition to Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware have initiated such programs. Still, even if ditching is proven to be safe and ef- fective, scientists admit that they have a long way to go before we can bid good rid- dance to this ubiquitous pest. Ditching may take care of the five species of salt marsh mosquitoes, but there are 163 additional species living and breeding in North America.
