Mosquito Larvae ("Wrigglers")

Photograph of several mosquito larvae resting at water surface

Mosquito larvae are aquatic, with a large head and thorax and narrow, wormlike abdomen. They typically hang just below the water surface, breathing air through tubes at the end of the abdomen. When disturbed, they wriggle downward.
