The need for information on mosquito rearing has been intensified by the increased interest in mosquito biology, control, chemoltherapy of mosquito borne diseases, and in other investigations in which mosquitoes are used as experimental animals. Since the publication of Helen Louise Trembley’ s “Mosquito Culture Techniques and Experimental Procedures” in 1955, published literature in this field has increased like
salt marsh mosquitoes after a high tide.
The acquisition elf knowledge concerning proper control of mosquitoes and mosquito borne diseases requires that studies be made of the biology, physiology, anatomy, genetics, taxonomy and ecology of the insect. Insecticide resistance, biological, chemical, and integrated control must be investigated. Research on mosquito genetics may have far-reaching consequences in the control of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases. Th e use of mosquitoes as screening agents for pesticides or chemotherapeutic compounds requires large numbers of mosquitoes. All phases of mosquito research usually use individual or quantity rearings of mosquitoes. Mass rearing of mosquitoes for control purposes may become, in the near future, as common as mass production of pesticides ………
