Default Those of you with plants...

How do you keep the mosquitos out of them? i seem to have a problem with mosquitos using my starters and stuff <all indoor BTW> as breeding grounds. how do you keep them boogers out? only thing i can figure is getting a big tank, putting them in, filling it up with water, then sticking a beta in there. any other ideas?

Note: i dont want to do pesticide.

Used coffee grounds or instant coffee crystals. Sprinkle them over the potting soil.

What kind of plants are you growing? Mosqiotoes need standing water to breed.
