Plague Warning!

My aunt-in-law gave me some clippings from her honeysuckle. She brought them to me in a mason jar with water. I have been growing roots in my kitchen window for a while and just adding water when needed. Well, we went out of town this weekend and when we got back, I notice tons (by tons, I mean TONS) of things swimming in the water! We thought about waiting to see what they turn into (they look like itty-bitty tad poles!) Before we entered into the world of breeding unkown insects/amphibians/reptiles, I decided to put Yahoo! Answers to use. I posted my situation and received an answer fairly quickly. Turns out my swimming babies are mosquito larvae! We have since decided not to wait, we will be dispossing of them immediately!
