How do I keep debris and mosquitoes out of the jar?

Big Grass offers galvanized drop-in filter baskets that can be used with the Ong jars to prevent mosquito breeding and the accumulation of leaf debris.

Alternatively, nylon mosquito netting can be cut and tied around the lip of the jar to filter debris and to prevent mosquitoes from entering the vessel. Firmly securing the metal lid that comes with the jar or the available teakwood lid also discourages mosquito breeding.

Note: For safety reasons, make sure the galvanized lid provided with the Ong® is always securely in place.
