What to do on receipt of the goods:
After receiving the package, we recommend putting the paper on a tray or other deep dish (baking tray, flat food storage ...)
Open and unfold the paper on the tray straight away to let the larvae breathe
Springle or spray a little fresh water over the larvae
The larvae can be returned to water but should be used up within 1 week
A plastic bucket will do
A fine fish or artemia net will help harvest the larvae
We offer nets as well, if you need one - look through our other listings
They pupate and turn into adult midges if left too long
The adults are non stinging but can be a lot if the pupa hatch at the same time
The adult midges will be female - the male larvae look different
The male larvae are usually filtered out by the aquarium supply specialist
