Abstract:The laboratory colony of Culicoides variipennis (Coquillett) was made more uniform, and production was increased by using a standardized larval medium composed of an inert substrate and a broth-microoganism system developed from commercially available products rather than from cow manure. A standard inoculum was used to initiate bacterial growth in larval pans, and a standard photoperiod of 13 hr of light was adopted for the larval colony.
