    Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis the active ingredient in mosquito dunks works well though it is not an "instant" fix. Soak a dunk or part of a dunk overnight in the water you will use for your plants. Use the "infected" water whenever you water. That particular type of bacteria will kill off the larvae.

    The neem oil and pyrethrins are usually in a pre-made insecticide, the orthene is mixed into water. The latter seems to kill anything I get stuck with, save for these mystery black/white-spotted insects that act like slow springtails....
    As mentioned above, Mosquito dunks are usually a good method too.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
