Abstract

The study made an observation on periodicity of oviposition, and the effects of nutrient and salinity in egg and larval development of Aedes togoi, and the results are summarized as follows: The 53.9% mosquitoes of one feeding laid eggs once, 26.9% laid twice and 19.2% laid three times. Autogenous rate of Aedes togoi reared in three different nutrient groups in larval sage was 6.9% in 0.8 mg/larva, 22.5% in 1.6 mg/larva and 44.4% in 2.4 mg/larva. The oviposition rate according to different salinity of the oviposition sites (0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 2.0% and 4.0%) was 25.2% in distilled water, 36.2% in 0.5% salinity, 23.5% in 1.0% salinity and 14.6% in 2.0% salinity. Developing period of the aquatic stage of male Aedes togoi in 25℃ were shorter (10.73 days) than females (11.85 days). The most effective concentration of salinity for the developing period was 1.0% which took 9.25 days in males and 10.44 days in females. In the developmental status of the follicles according to nutrition in the larval stage, the numbers of follicles of groups fed 0.8 mg, 1.6 mg and 2.4 mg per larva were 180.7, 197.5 and 202 respectively. The result of ovary dissection on the 10th day after emergence, three different nutrition groups were in Christopher's stage IIa mostly; each 71.0%, 61.1% and 39.9% of the total follicles and autogenous females observed.
