dc.description.abstractGrowth of the ultimate follicle to the resting stage in Aedes aegypti is linear and reaches maximum development about 6Ohr after emergence. Decapitations and ligations at various times after emergence indicate that growth of the follicles is under the control of factors from the head and thorax. Release of head factor occurs within one day after emergence and is relatively sudden. The thoracic factor is released gradually over a 2 to 3 day period. Near normal growth of follicles in isolated abdomens after topical application of juvenile hormone (JH) indicates that the thoracic factor is JH from the corpora allata and demonstrates the feasibility of using this system as a JH assay. When ecdysone was injected simultaneously with JH the follicles failed to grow.en
