oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Oogenesis and oviposition in Culex theileri Theobald (Diptera: Culicidae) at various constant temperatures

Volume 50, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The development of the eggs in Culex theileri Theobald females exposed to various constant temperatures between 12�C and 36�C was examined. Development took place only between 12�C and 33�C. The developmental zero was 9�C. A basis was set for the prediction of the developmental rate of C. theileri eggs exposed to a given constant temperature. Maximum oviposition took place at 24�C.
