Mosquito Eggs on BIF strips

Today I found mosquito eggs on a landing strip. ¬†ūüôā

Mosquito Eggs

It was one of my early strips made with bifenthrin. Being paper, it was starting to rot in the water, but it still reached the surface. This is the first time I’ve found eggs, so this is great news. ¬†For one thing, it shows mosquitoes will enter a mosquito trap and land on a BIF treated strip and lay eggs. ¬†That means they¬†should have gotten a lethal dose of poison. ¬†Yeah!

I took this picture by holding my phone up to a hand lens so the quality is not so great.  But they are clear!
