Kind of but that takes up a lot of space and it only works for one tray

Same system as above but put the water jug up higher and use tubing or pipes down to the different trays. Make sure the pipe goes far enough into the tray to reach the desired wanted level

i would try using a short under bed tote as 1 big tray Image
this makes mosquito control ez, but for long term use in full sun it would need to be protected from UV so paint or use a liner or in 2+ years it will be very brittle
