I have a birdbath and in the summer it accommodates many mosquitos' eggs. It's concrete, so I would rather not pour it out each time. I also don't want to poison the water as to not harm the birds. I hope to deter the occasional roaming Zikachu, thanks!

  • The methods of mosquito control are common and well establish, so unless you have some unusual situation that requires thinking "outside the box", this doesn't really need a life hack within the context of this site. Aug 4 '16 at 23:06
  • Incidentally, mosquito control in this scenario is reasonably on topic on our Gardening site; others may be on topic on Outdoors SE. But this has already been answered here: How do I keep mosquitos out of my fountain? Aug 4 '16 at 23:07
  • @RobertCartaino I would rather not poison the water, and fish aren't an option

    I think it's a fine question to ask here. I assume that it being concrete makes it too heavy. You want to push the water out, you could use a broom. I typically have a hose in my hand when I'm changing the water, so I put my thumb over the top and use the pressurised stream to rinse the bath out.
