Caption: Northern house mosquito larva (Culex pipiens) suspended head down from a water surface. A single female lays between 40 to 400 eggs onto a water surface, which quickly hatch into larvae. The larvae breathes through a piphon tube (top). Surface tension around the hairs of the opening of the tube enables the larvae to retain its position.
