 Subject: Re: mosquito egg rafts
 Hi All,
 Recently there has been a lack of rain in our area and my mosquito tubs have
 more mosquito larvae than usual.  I would like to freeze the excess egg
 rafts and hatch them in green water this winter. Has anyone done this
 successfully.  Any hints or tips would be appreciated.
I have done this but the rafts don't need to be frozen just dried. Where I 
live (in the south) freezing weather kills the eggs. If we don't get a few 
hard freezes in the winter mosquitoes are much worse than when we don't have 
at least couple of frosts.
