Dumping mosquito larvae-infested water

jordanc8July 7, 2010

I discovered this evening that a kiddie pool I had outside was infested with mosquito larvae. I had it covered, but apparently that didn't keep them out. I ended up just dumping all the water out, but now I'm worried that this won't actually kill them. Should I do more to make sure they don't grow into mosquitoes?

The area where I dumped the water is where I want to transplant some tomatoes. Is that going to be a problem?

No worry just let them dry up first.

Mosquito larvae are totally aquatic and will die where you dumped them.

Those larvae are now organic fertlizer. Not to worry.
