Re: Daphnia & Skeeters
I have about 20 assorted outdoor containers of daphnia Magna and (what I
think is) Russian Red Moina. In the early spring, mosquito larvae shows up
first. Most, but not all of the time, once a daphnia culture is really
thriving and highly populated, mosquito larvae disappears. Once the culture
dies back during the heat of the summer, mosquito larvae becomes dominant.

Ok, here is a stupid question, several of you have mentioned that you never
see any mosquito larvae populating in your Daphnia production containers.
I seem to have the opposite, I have a few cultures that seem to have both.
Is this a bad sign to be producing both in the same container?
Do I need to be doing something different?
Of course on the good side I can harvest the larvae and feed them to my
