What is the most effective and safe way to control mosquitos in bird baths? If Mosquito Dunks, can they be broken into smaller pieces for a bird bath? Or is there some other product or technique that works well for such a small container of water?

The safest and most effective way would be to periodically dump or replace the water that is in bird baths. Even just completely rinsing with a strong hose or pressure water would remove most of the mosquito larvae that are swimming in the bird bath. While the Mosquito Dunks should work, rinsing and replacing the water is much cheaper for about the same level of effectiveness

Thank you. I will do that.
