I would like to know the same thing but you might have more luck with answers if you put this post under the tank setup section or somewere.

Well blood worms are a type of mosquito larva, I'm not sure exactly what kind. But if you just leave a large container of pond water out side, you will eventually get native mosquito larva. These are white/clear in color. Usually sold frozen as white mosquito larva.

What about where I live there is a really big scare about westnile virus being transferd through mosquitos wouldnt there be a posiblility of it passing on to the fish if they were fed a bad mosquito?

Bloodworms are the larva of not mosquitos, but midges. You should be able to set up a outdoor (fishless) pond and get some.

I found some info in my betta book on how to grow bloodworms. Fill a wading pool or barrel with water and add twigs and dead leaves. Within weeks, surfaces will have thousands of thin, brown capsules containing individual bloodworms. Scrape them off and shake to release the bloodworms.You can wash them first or feed to your fish, mud and all. It wouldn't be a good idea to handle them if you are allergic to them.

Raising blackworm might be easier to handle, not that I have done it yet myself, but there is lots of info available on it if you do a google search.
