Product Information

Water boatman
Habitat: Water boatman are found in still and slowly flowing pools. Typically they occur in shallower water among vegetation or on muddy bottoms and are rarely found away from the edges in large water bodies. Boatmen are amongst the most
abundant of water bugs and are found throughout Australia and Tasmania.Diet: Most water boatman are omnivorous eating small organic matter of either plant or animal origin but certain species prey upon small invertebrates such as fly larvae. When feeding they tend to forage on or near the bottom and therefore are only seen when they come up for air, breaking the surface with their head.Behaviour: Adult water boatman are strong fliers and therefore it is not surprising
that they are found throughout Australia. They are a favourite food of trout and native fish.
