The uptake of P32 as a function of time per unit dry weight of Aedes vexans (Meigen) larvae has been studied. There was a significant uptake of P32 by instar IV larvae up to 72 hours, although the rate of uptake was very rapid during the first 24 hours. There was little, but measurable, transfer of radioactivity from radioactive males during induced copulation. The radioactive female deposited appreciable radioactivity with the eggs.
