Live Foods Digest V3 #222
I too keep daphnia in barrels, I have found that mosquitos do not turn up in
an active daphnia culture. I live in mosquito central and every bit of
standing water will have wigglers swimming but not in my daphnia cultures.
Even in the summer when the daphnia disappears no wigglers will be present.
It's kinda frustrating because wigglers would be great food. I do sometimes
place a barrel of water with about three inches of composted mushroom soil
(which is really composed chicken manure) or composted cow manure on the
bottom. The wigglers will show up quickly. I harvest them everyday and make
sure I get the pupa before them change. Fish seem to like the pupas best.
