Abstract:

Laboratory experiments were conducted to determine the effects of feeding various concentrations of sucrose upon the life span of Aedes Stegomyia albopictus Skuse in a controlled environment. The life span of the adult, virgin female was not affected by feeding sucrose in concentrations of 0.1 to 1.0 M at 0.1 M increments. Author
