But get around they do, although they will probably take quite a few years to arrive naturally in a new garden pond.

But this is such a diverse group of animals that you can find just about every possible different way of living amongst them: from docile grazers to fierce predators.Water bugs aren’t just pond animals – rivers and streams may have backswimmers in the stiller, well-vegetated areas, and saucer bugs, water scorpions and occasionally water stick insects too.

These species are often some of the most endangered because if the place they are living becomes in some way unsuitable they can’t move to a new home. Bugs are often very good fliers – so they’re usually some of the first creatures to arrive at new garden ponds.But not all beetles are fast movers: some can’t fly at all, or only when its unusually warm – so can’t easily move from one pond to another.

The backswimmers comprise two families in Britain, the Notonectidae and, for the Lesser Backswimmers, the Pleidae. Many look a bit like the larvae of alderflies but often have two tails, and they lack the gills along the side of the body that are one of the distinguishing features of alderfly larvae. Water Wigglies have been a Play Visions staple for over 30 years strong with no end in sight, as we develop new styles every year.This is because they naturally live in places where oxygen levels can be low – but there’s nothing unnatural about that in ponds, and in clean rivers they like the naturally silty places. Flies and worms also get a bit of a bad reputation because as well as always being present in the nice ponds they can live in some pretty horrible looking places too. There’s nothing to really worry about if you don’t have them, and no special need to introduce them.
