<< I belive birds moved the eggs of my ommatas from the tubs to the killi
pond. Dozens of species of birds love my ponds, and use them to bathe and
drink from. that is why I said I was shooting myself in the foot. If
cardinals carried the eggs to my front yard and established a population,
then they could fly 3 blocks down the road to the lake and deposit them
there., or maybe even 3 miles the other way and put them in the river, or
several of the ditches inbetween. Ommatas would not survive our couple of
months of icy water, but who knows....
that leads me to my other post. there msut be a controlling factor for
this, or fish should be found in every place they could inhabit. >>

It would seem to be the same thing for the pathogens that fish carry as
well.Why aren't they more widespread in distribution?
