Rain Barrel

herp35April 27, 2008

I have a double rain barrel and now that the warmer weather has arrived, it gets mosquitoes and algae in it. How do I subdue this problem? I grow nepenthes and other VERY sensitive plants so I can't use bleach. Would a mosquito block for ponds hurt? I don't want to kill my expensive plants.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Also, how do you clean a rain barrel?
