Yes; you are warmer than I am here in MA. Mosquito larva are NOT carnivorous.
I found this on Wikipedia:
The mosquito larva has a well-developed head with mouth brushes used for feeding, a large thorax with no legs, and a segmented abdomen.
Larvae breathe through spiracles located on the eighth abdominal segment, or through a siphon, and therefore must come to the surface frequently. The larvae spend most of their time feeding on algae, bacteria, and other microbes in the surface microlayer. They dive below the surface only when disturbed. Larvae swim either through propulsion with their mouth brushes, or by jerky movements of their entire bodies, giving them the common name of "wigglers" or "wrigglers".

Hmm seems like they will be a good fry food after they grow a little more. My babies are ten days old today! :)

Where in MA? I'm right here next to a riding stable and EEE and West Nile were the big scare last year here near Springfield. My biggest worry is ticks. Thank you very much ditch-next-to-our-house-that-gives-a-home-to-Trejo-the-fox,-Ranger-the- coyote-and-Sasha Coon's-family.

Hi, Artemis! I'm in Hamilton- on the Ipswich/Essex border, a mile or two from Crane beach (North shore).
& THANK YOU, salt marshes + horses, for breeding greenhead flies that make life miserable in late July.
I've heard that Hamilton has the highest person-to-horse ratio in the country, but I doubt that. My neighboring farm down the hill seems to think it's charming to have a donkey- a donkey who brays every day @ sunrise, waking the whole area!

We had 2 for a few years in our old neighborhood in Texas. It was quite nice to hear them on nice summer afternoons in my opinion but it was a few blocks away.
