    • Abstract

       

      Adult females are fed at regular intervals after emerging from the puparium, then forced to diapause at temperatures ranging from 5–10°C. Longevity, oviposition and the diapausing period are recorded. Ageing is indirectly proportional to the diapausing ability and directly proportional to the maturation of the gonads and oviposition.
