How To Culture Mosquito Larvae As Fish Food? | My Aquarium Club

Feeding mosquito larvae is one of the most nutritional live food you can feed to freshwater aquarium fish. But, without proper sterilization, you can bring in harmful parasites into your fish's system.

There was significant correlation between the number of mosquito larvae consumed and the number of mosquito larvae initially exposed. Larval consumption was higher in groups with large number of mosquitoes (e.g. n = 150) than in groups with small numbers (n = 100 or n = 50). However, the number of mosquito larvae consumed was similar among the groups with the different amount of supplementary fish food.

Feeding mosquito larvae to fish. Long term goal is to make a mosquito trap that encourages them to breed in that spot and that will routinely empty larvae into the fish feeder. Mosquitoes in nature are actually an important mechanism for transporting nutrients through the ecosystem but the goal is to break the cycle, use them as fish food and seriously dent their numbers as a flying population. The other part of the project is a breeder barrel where they can lay the eggs but the larvae cannot pupate and fly away. I'm still working on that part.

Some fish require live food to survive; some require live food to breed. Raising mosquito or midge larvae for this purpose is free, simple to set up, and requires minimal work. After you've determined that doing this will not violate any local laws and regulations regarding public health [1] all you'll need is a bucket, water, and some sun.I saw a thread from last year on raising mosquito larvae for fish food (). I've been raising mosquito larvae for about a month now with very good results. My fish absolutely LOVE them (should be a pretty natural food), and I feed them almost nothing else. My juvenile bass have-in-least doubled in size in 4-5 weeks on this diet. My setup is described below. As I said, I've only been-in-this for about a month or so, so I can't say this is perfect, but it has worked well thus far.Some fish need to be fed live food, which is often more expensive than flakes or pellets.

Raising mosquito larvae is extremely simple and can provide nutritious food for your fish free of charge! All it takes is a container to hold water, a little patience, and a watchful eye.Whichever method you choose, it is important to check periodically that it is being effective. This can be done by scooping water into a white cup or bowl. Any mosquito larvae should be visible against the white surface. If you see any wriggling little objects, you need to consider an additional method of mosquito control. If you find many larvae in your fishpond, it is possible that you are feeding your fish too much. Try reducing the amount of food for a couple of days and see if the larvae population decreases.

Follow these guidelines and you will be able to enjoy your pond all summer long without having to worry about mosquitoes.
