Abstract

In the present study, effect of different concentrations (2, 3 and 4%) of 8 amino acids viz. Alanine (L), Isoleucine (L), Leucine (L), Glutamic acid (L), Tyrosine (L), Methionine (L), Glycine (L) and Phenyl Alanine (L) were studied on the duration of development of specific life cycle stages of immature Culex quinquefasciatus in laboratory bioassay. The necessary instar/ stage specific developmental period was found to be density independent. Alanine, Glutamic acid and Isoleucine have a developmental delayed effect where as Methionine and Tyrosine had a growth acceleratory effect.
