This photograph was captured in order to show how these overgrown water hyacinth, Eichhornia crassipes, could act to choke out this fresh water source, and act to create a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes including Anopheles quadrimaculatus, Mansonia spp. and Culex spp., produce larvae which anchor onto the plants, and are protected from waves.
