Eggs of five strains of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) were obtained in both diapause and nondiapause conditions and exposed to various cold acclimation regimes in the laboratory, after which they were subjected to diverse chilling treatments. Larvae that survived chilling as eggs survived to the pupal stage. Eggs of Aedes aegypti (L.) and Aedes triseriatus (Say) were included as control species. Eggs of temperate Ae. albopictus were more cold-hardy than eggs of Ae. aegypti but less cold-hardy than… CONTINUE READING
