So i just found out that there are mosquito larvae in the trays of water for my CPs. And i was thinking about using mosquito dunks but im not sure if it will harm the CPs. I know the bacteria in it only harms mosquitos and it is safe for all other "wildlife", but i'm just wondering if anyone has used it before and if they were successful in killing the larvaes.

Just search 'mosquito dunks' and you will see there are a few members that use them successfully.

I use them in my bog garden outside with no issues whatsoever,and it kills any and all larvae swimming around, and the plants are 100% healthy. Hope that helps
