KittenFishMom Posted January 8, 2022 Share Posted January 8, 2022 This summer, when I had a lot of sunfish and bluegills in my native tank, I started feeding mosquito larva. Youtube was full of people saying that fish thrived on them, and how to set up wonderful water to get loads of free healthy fish food. I even bought a bigger mosquito net so I could catch even more. The wild fish went, well, went wild for them ! One small problem was that the fish did not get every last larva. In no time my garage had more adult mosquitoes per square foot than any place else on earth. Anyone who walked into the garage was swarmed. I stopped feed the larva, but it didn't help. I left the door open at night, with the lights off. I left the door open durring the day. I bought a mosquito zapping light. I put on repellent everytime I went in the garage. I still got eaten alive. I don't like pestisides, and I really did not want to spray any with my fish tank there. I could find nothing on youtube about how to handle a fish room full of very hungry mosquitoes. There was nothing in the garage for them to eat, but me ! Over time, they did die off, but it took much longer than I wanted it to. Anyone have any tricks on how to avoid adult mosquitoes, if you are feeding live wiggling larva to your fish? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
