This little jar of "ick" found in my watering can last week has taken us on an impromptu mosquito trial.
They are fiesty little things, still in the larvae stage (also known appropriately as "the wigglers") and look very much like this culex here:
They stay in the larvae stage for 4-10 days. You can't see ours in the jar so to show your children how energetic these larvae are, click here for a short video showing: Asian Tiger Mosquito Larvae Swimming in Water
Ours should be going into the pupa stage soon.
Anybody want a pet mosquito?
