Clean Up
(similar for both bottle bioassay and larval assay)

When you are finished with your beakers (or bottles) or they have become too old to use, triple rinse them with acetone and wash them with warm soapy water.

Place the beakers (or bottles) in an oven to thoroughly dry before using them again.

If you are uncertain whether the beakers (or bottles) are completely clean, introduce some susceptible mosquitoes into the beaker after you dried them. The mosquitoes should not die right away. If they do, clean the beakers again.
