It doesn't really matter... If you leave the water outside long enough it won't matter. Oddly, adding a bit of soil to the water seems to attract more mosquitos.. (I added a bit of compost).

Mosquitos are larger then BBS... They're about equally healthy..

Need to learn how to identify some predatory organisms that live in water and eat mosquitos since they might snack on a fry. (dragonfly larvae will, but once the fry get over 1/4 inch long they're too big to be hurt, and will gang up on and shred even the largest dragonfly larvae to pieces)

I like mosquitos cause they're free, easier, and don't lose nutritional value...

Be sure to harvest them regularly though, you don't want an infestation.
