Abstract

Techniques are presented for maintaining colonies of Anopheles sergentii, an important malaria vector in Egypt. Larval development time and survival rates were determined for 3 rearing solutions and 4 temperatures. Under optimal conditions larval survival rates averaged 85%. Mean life expectancy at emergence for mated An. sergentii was 23.3 days under insectary conditions of 27 +/- 2 degrees C, 70-80% R.H. The net reproductive rate, mean generation time and instantaneous rate of increase were respectively, 45.8 females per female per generation, 29.7 days and 0.127. In the context of vector potential for malaria transmission, An. sergentii has a daily survivorship rate of 0.95.
