Sterilization of Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann by apholate

By M. Das


The use of alkylating agents has been found to be a promising way of chemosterilizing mosquitos for control purposes. The investigation discussed in the present paper has shown that apholate (2,2,4,4,6,6-hexahydro-2,2,4,4,6,6-hexakis (1-aziridinyl)-1,3,5,2,4,6-triazatriphosphorine) can induce sterility rates of from 43% to 95% in Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann treated in the larval stage, and from 80% to 100% in C. fatigans treated in the adult stage; treatment in the pupal stage produced no significant sterility
