Re: value of bugs zapped by bug zapper as food

Hello Chuck,

I have heard of bug zappers being placed over the pond in order to provided
a steady source of freshly killed insects.  I have never tried this.

The North American Native Fishes Association:  over
20 years of conservation efforts, public education, and
aquarium study of our native fishes.  Check it out at
