    Hi All,

    After the pond water is released, I saw quite a number of insect around the pond, as shown in the photo. Any idea what type of insect is this? Any harm to the koi?

    The size of the insect is approximately 4mm in length.

    Pua,

    No problem i think. Looks like silk worm pupae, have you tried feeding them to the kois.

    Also have few of them in my pond. But dissappeared recently after treatment of dimilin due to koi flashing.

Howdy, Stranger!
