    Mine never last that long. I use them up as the supply dwindles.

    Interesting, the betta has beatiful colors and the larvae looks nutritious.
    Poor man´s daphnia LOL.
    I may try it out, hopefully I am responsible enough to to infestate my whole community with mosquito.

    They would still find water and lay their eggs, with or without your help !

    Yeah, I guess I will try it out! I am sure my Mollys and Barbs will go nuts for some live food. Is there any risk of introducing diseases to the aquarium?

    I've been doing it for the last 25 years and I've never had a problem. Don't get them from ponds/ditches/puddles etc. As long as you put out clean water, in clean buckets, there will be no diseases that can be introduced to your fish. That's an old internet myth that's been going around for a while. Insects don't carry or transmit fish pathogens. Do watch out for dragonfly and damsel fly larvae though.
