Sublethal concentrations of Abate (temephos) were applied to F2 generation Aedes aegypti larvae, and fecundity and longevity were recorded in the emerged adults. Females exposed to Abate oviposited only in the first 2 gonotrophic cycles, meanwhile control females laid a few eggs after taking the third blood meal. Dosages of 0.009, 0.013 and 0.015 mg/liter of Abate decreased the mean egg production per gonotrophic cycle 37, 47 and 69%, respectively, in relation to the control. Females that were… CONTINUE READING
