    Where do you grow them?
    If I had mosquitos in my tank I would just chop some onions,put it on a plate and put it in the tank for a time...The mosquitos hate it...
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Yes, if you need to use an oil based type of mosquito killer, use PAM the non-stick spray. It will coat the water surface, preventing mosquitoes from breathing. However, I do not know if you would want to use it in a Nep pitcher. I would myself, just to see if any harm came to the plant, but, I have no Neps anymore. I am only raising plants from the USA. PAM works like Gangbusters on a water tray!

    erm... I am looking for a more passive approach, not so much passive, just that I dont really want to do anything which may harm the pticher. The onion method sounds good...does it stink to the human? And how long does the effect last?
    thanks

    I wouldnt suggest unions if you want the larva away..
    I wouldnt suggest it either if you dont have them in a closed area.

    You may want to check out at a bait store or a nearby pond and see if you can find damsel fly or dragon fly larvae. They live in the water and prey upon mosquittoes as larvaes and as adults.

    Have you filled your pitchers with water?
    Bugs arent supposed to live in those pitchers

    dont heliamphora get there pitchers filled with rainwater? maybe thats why bladderworts will live there then I think the bladderworts will have a little lack of light maybe..but nepenthes arent supposed to be filled with water right?..(exept ampullaria and other species that have there lid straight up..
