THE ELUSIVE POND WOLF: HOW DO I KEEP IT AWAY FROM MY POND? Long Valley- Morris County NJ
Dye the pond! This is the only thing in past years we have found that has worked. Use black pond dye and dye the pond once a month. How is this going to help? I know it sounds ridiculous, right?
It helps by making the pond dark, which inhibits the mink or muskrat from seeing the fish. It must be done once a month during the winter as the dye does dissipate over time. Doing this does not guarantee a mink won't get your fish, but we have had amazing success deterring the mink just by adding dye to the pond.
