Since salt and other toxins have affected larvae in other studies, we hypothesized that the samples with table salt, MgCl brine, or beet juice brine will have a lower LT50 than the control group. We also hypothesized the larvae would have the highest mortality in salt and the lowest mortality in beet juice brine. The null hypothesis will be that table salt, beet juice brine, and MgCl samples won’t differ on the control’s group LT50.
