Reared under "non-aeration" and "drip" methods, the larval periods were 10.4± 1.0 days and 13.8± 1.2, while the pupation rates were 80.5% and 95.3%, respectively. With standard food quantity (12 mg of mixture of mouse pellets and dry yeast for lst-instar, 25 mg for 2nd-, 50 mg for 3rdand 75

With 100 pairs in a 30 × 60× 60 cm size cage, the insemination rate was above 85% and as high as 91.7% fromlO to 15 days old, The feeding rate of the fernales 14 days after emergence was 37.0% when offered hairless mice. One female laid an average of 203.0± 71,4 eggs, The survival rates of males and females at the 4th week after emergence were 75,O% and 78,O%, respectively. The longevity of the species was high in beth sexes. The JapanSociety of Medical Entomology and Zoology 220 The JapanSociety of Medical Entomology and Zoology Vol.52 No.3 2001
