We’ve had a lot of mosquito larvae in our make-shift frog/toad habitat. We watched a fascinating, informative video about the mosquito’s life cycle here. We didn’t know that the mosquito larvae breathe through a tube at the surface of the water. Also we learned that mosquito eggs can live through the winter and hatch in the spring.
Meanwhile, we have about 20-25 tadpoles that have survived in our habitat and are growing larger. LD in particular has kept close tabs on them!
