 I  see  some   mosquito  larvae  in  my  unused  aquarium  tank.  
 Can  I  feed  them  to  my  fishes?  
 I  tried  feeding  couple  of  them  to  my  fish,  looks  like  they  love  it.  Instantly  It  was  eaten  by  the  fish!!!
 
 Please  suggest.

 I  don't  see  any  larva  growth  in  my  bucket  kept  outside  lately  (since  last  4  months)   Shocked   
 
 I  used  to  get  a  lot  of  larva  growth  before,  but  suddenly  no  activities  !!
 Is  there  any  particular  months  that  mosquito  breed  ?  or  is  it  all  year  round  ?
 
 Please  advice.

 Summers  should  be  very  active...strange  if  that  has  not  happened...  Less  during  rainy  season...as  they  need  stagnant  water.
 Is  there  any  oil  film  on  the  water...that  is  a  perfect  deterrent  for  mosquitoes  to  breed.
 Quick  question...did  u  see  any  mosquitoes  around  during  those  4  months.

 No  nothing  in  last  4  months.  No  oil  contamination  or  even  traces.  Since  i  had  breed  them  successfully  in  past  at  same  location  and  same  container
 Even  i  am  surprised  with  no  activities  lately.
 
 The  water  is  aged  (Its  been  outside  now  for  more  than  20  days).

 A  DIY  if  CO2  mix  and  leave  it  near  the  bucket  to  attract  them  there
 Keep  the  DIY  mix  container  open  by  blocking  the  top  with  a  muslin  cloth  or  filter  floss.  
 This  will  release  the  smell  of  CO2  which  attracts  them  but  not  allow  them  to  enter  and  die.
 
 Could  have  suggested  to  keep  some  women  around  the  buckets  ROFL   ROFL

 But  CO2  will  get  you  hungry  mosquitoes.  Mama  mozzies  lay  eggs  after  a  blood  meal.

 I  understand  that  co2  attracts  them,  But  the  algae  growth  in  stagnant  water  will  surely  release  co2.
 Still  no  sign  of  larva.   Sad

 Indeed,  I  too  have  th  same  problem  with  my  daphnia  bucket.  No  new  mozzie  larvae  since  past  few  weeks!  Puzzling,  as  I  had  a  fair  crop  just  a  couple  of  weeks  back  ubut  now  there  are  no  new  egg  rafts  or  baby  larvae.

 Seems  we  can  blame  climate.  Its  about  36  Degree  C  with  75  %  humidity  here  in  Mumbai.

 Is  it  clear  water  ?  It  maybe  because  there  may  not  be  enough  food  for  the  larvae  .  They  also  need  something  to  eat  .  They  eat  small  multicellular  or  unicellular  organisms.   Keep  to  near  some  bushy  place  that  u  frequently  visit  .   Female  need  blood  for  laying  eggs  .  Put  some  vegetation  in  it  like  floating  plants  or  luckey  bamboo  and  some  crushed  fish  food  ,  it  will  be  food  for  micro  organisms  and  hence  food  for  larvae

 My  daphnia  are  not  dying  off  in  that  bucket  so  it's  not  the  lack  of  food.  What  drives  me  crazy  is  that  I  am  bitten  to  death  by  the  mosquitoes  and  not  a  larva  in  sight!
