Re: NFC: Culturing Mosquito Larvae.....

The best method I've ever found to do it is to set up something to grow
them out in myself, such as a small fish pond, bucket or something like
that... then take an old woman's stocking (thats an old stocking of a
woman, not a stocking of an old woman.... though those might be easier to
get.)  Take a big cup or something, scoop the top of the water, and funnel
it thru there.  Or, for a bucket or something like that, I usually pull
the whole thing out and poor just the top most sections thru the water
(avoids the leaf-litter.)  BTW... setting one of these up in the backyard
is a surefire way to get rid of neighboors. :)
