A method for mass breeding of Aedes Aegypti is described. The results were obtained with larvae grown with an infusion of guinea pig excrement with brewers yeast, in which a rich microflora developed. Specially constructed closets used for breeding mosquitoes and containers for growing larvae are described. This method permits one to obtain thousands of mosquitoes of known age and physiological condition per week, with little effort, time, or space. This method may also be used for breeding certain species of Anopheles and Culex.
