Subject: Re: mosquito egg rafts
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.
