The effect of five larval diets on the ultrastructural development of the oocyte follicular epithelium in Aedes aegypti was undertaken. Results reveal that vitellogenesis can be prolonged provided that the protein diet per larva is increased by at least ten-fold. We also descriptionbe a modified time-saving technique for processing mosquito and possibly insect ovarian tissue.
