Abstract : Medium supporting larval Aedes aegypti were sampled for total numbers of bacteria present. Over a period of 12 months 61 lots of media were examined. Bacterial growth rate was no faster in the medium where excessive numbers of larvae were dying than in the normal medium. Bacterial cells in both media reached a peak of 10 to the 8th power/ml of medium.
