Laboratory and field experiments were carried out in Peninsular Malaysia on the potential of Toxorhynchites splendens for the biological control of mosquito vectors of disease pathogens. When oviposition was delayed for 7 days in the laboratory, a relatively large number of eggs was produced by females of T. splendens during the first 2 weeks; however, oviposition delayed by 14, 22 and 30 days resulted in lower egg production.
