We have LARVAE!
Updated: Nov 11
Our great team of educators worked with their students and ovitrapped for 6 wks. During "fall break" (ha, there was no break!) educators dropped off their egg papers to UT. The educators and their students were VERY successful. All 15 educators turned in their egg papers (100% return rate!). Additionally, Corey has already blasted through counting eggs and he counted 71,903 eggs on those egg papers with a mean of 127 eggs per paper! The first week of eggs went into the stink water November 2. Th egg papers were submerged for a day, dried for day 2, and were then resubmerged on day 3. Egg papers then stay in the water until day 5. We saw and noted our first larve on November 3!
