Question:

Little black things swimming in my vase of lucky bamboo; are they mosquito larvae? or???? and what should I do?  Is my family safe? Thanks,

Answer:

There is no way for me to identify what insects you are seeing without actually seeing them. But it really doesn’t matter.

Remove the lucky bamboo stems from their container and discard the water in the container. Then, rinse both the container and the plant stems and roots with clear water. That should remove any insect pests or larvae.

If you see any stems or roots that are rotted (soft and mushy), then cut them away and discard them.

Finally, place the Lucky Bamboo cuttings back in the container and fill it with clear water. For the future, it is best to change the water every week or two.
