  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Quantitative data are given on the preovipostion, oviposition, incubation and premoult periods of Amblyomma hebraeum Koch maintained in darkness at 26�C and 90% RH; the duration of feeding in all stages on laboratory hosts and the onset of pharate development in engorged larvae and nymphs were also examined. Sexual maturation, mating capacity and longevity of parasitic males and mate-seeking in relation to engorgement in females have been studied.
