By means of emergence cages, the oviposition and emergence time of Hippelates collusor (Townsend) were studied under field conditions. This eye gnat species was found to increase its oviposition activity soon after disturbance or disking of its natural habitats. Most of the eggs were deposited within a few hours after the disking and within 24 hours a great portion of the eggs was laid. No appreciable increase was noticeable in number of eggs laid beyond the first 24-hour interval after the disking.

Peak emergence usually occurred within a period of 2 to 4 weeks after the disking. In cooler months, the emergence lasted over a longer period of time than in the warmer months
