Default Mosquitos

I have a number of outside tanks/tubs to breed daphnia and random pond bugs, I have noticed that mosquitos prefer to breed in black buckets rather than white tubs or tanks. Has anybody else experienced this ? I use the larvae to feed a number of amphibians, particularly newly morphed xenopus who are attracted to the fast movements they make when startled. Is there any particular reason why mosquitos prefer to breed in black buckets ? I have more larvae in fifteen liter buckets than 50 gall tanks.
