Abstract

Abstract The development time for an autogenous strain of Culex pipiens was prolonged after the mosquitoes were “cured” of their symbiotic Wolbachia pipients with tetracycline. Eggs produced by aposymbiotic females caged with either aposymbiotic or normal males failed to hatch. Neither growth rate nor reproduction was improved by feeding the larvae a commensal flagellate, bovine blood cells, or adenylic acid.
