Ollas and mosquitoes

Q. Do you cover the tops of the ollas? Here in MN you’d get mosquitoes breeding in them if you didn’t.

A. Good point. Thanks for reminding me. Yes, we cover the ollas. We use rocks to cover over the opening of the ollas to prevent mosquitoes from invading the interior of the olla.

    Another concern with ollas, at least here in NM, is they attract black widow spiders. No mosquitos though.

    Otherwise we too have noticed how good a job the ollas do. Our plants are happy.
