Abstract

The mosquito parasite, , was mass produced for the treatment of 144,000 m of breeding area in El Salvador. The production of the necessary inoculum required the exposure of 1.6 × 10 first-instar larvae to 137 × 10 preparasites (1:14 ratio) each week for 6 weeks. The method employed produced an average 13.7 g (ca. 2,200/g) of postparasitic nematodes per rearing tray (20,000 mosquitoes), a total of 6,392 g (14.1 lb) for the 6-week period, and 425 cultures.
