As long as it is wet the larva or whatever you call them will survive. See the following link.

See-I told you guys that the lakes suck here. I hear ZB's make the water rough too. My advice is to stay up north!

Filter feeders. They will multiply exponentially for a while, and when they have eaten a good portion of the algae there wont be enough to feed so many and they reduce in number. Less algae = clearer water is the upside. Long term clearer water = deeper sunlight penetration, therefore more weed growth is the longterm downside. Buy some water shoes and you'll be fine.

So I went to Texoma a couple of years ago. I cleaned the crap out of my boat and didn't put it in a Texas lake for 10 days. River Rat gave me crap for so long. When this came out he texted me accusing me of bringing ZB's to Texas. I texted back that we found vinegar and water in our lake and I had determined it came from him!
