    I pour the water throught the pots and, even if a few of larvae survive the journey, it reduces their population quite a bit. But my Sarrs are all in a live sphagnum & sponge rock mix that is a very effective and fast draining filter.

    When the Sarrs are out for summer, I let the trays dry out at least once per week to take care of the problem. My favorite problems are those that can be solved by doing nothing, such as by not refilling trays as often. There's no need to accelerate Bt resistance in mosquitoes by using dunks for CP growing.

    alright, alright here's what you do, you swat all the visible mosquitoes then you spray the plant and the soil with heavy mosquito repelent, that way they cant see the plant

I like this way cause it's just little pebbles instead of those big ole dunks. I know this kind works superfast! I'm talking... less than 6 hours later... All the mosquito larva in my U. gibba tank were dead. ...simply awesome. I never saw any return to the tank either.

    Actually, I wasn't thinking about killing anything. I mean, not me, personally. I'm just gonna let the larvae turn into mosquitoes and let the pigmy dews, binatas & company do their thing.

    Logically, I know what happened. I just wasn't expecting it - sorta like the Spanish Inquisition.

    SPECtracide? Good pun!
