    I had my plants outside for most of the Summer, through mid-November. They went through four torrential downpours and I have seen mosquito larvae - then. I brought them inside and yesterday, I noticed that two of the containers had fresh mosquito larvae. How?

    Well, son, it's like this. A male mosquito and a female mosquito meet and he invites her out for dinner. Then there's .... and then .... and, whoa, ....

    Then there's mosquito larvae in the water.

    Eh, seriously I'd say that's how they got there... Dump the water out on some concrete so they die. And refill with fresh water. Problem solved. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    You could buy some special 'dunks' (they contain Bacillus thurengensis / Bt toxin) and put in the trays to prevent mosquitoes. I know someone in our group, WildBill, who uses these. Hope I helped.

    Very true. I have used another type of this... It's by Spectracide and is called "mosquito stop" this comes in packets and you sprinkle some in... 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.
