It is recommended that if following measurement of the length, the calculated larval height differs by more than 4-5 [micro]m from the actual measured height; it is more than probable that the larva is not P.
Survivorship was slightly higher for half-sized than for whole-sized larvae, but this pattern was not statistically significant (Kaplan-Meier survival analysis comparing distributions of probability of death-at-time for each individual larva, grouped by half- and whole-sized larvae: Mantel chi-square statistic = 0.386, df = 1, P = 0.535 (Systat statistical package ver.
From 80-100 planktotrophic egg masses were hatched together for each batch culture, and the resulting pool of larvae was divided into replicate beakers containing 3 1 of FSW at concentrations of 1 larva per milliliter.

The ADC said that surveillance activities or tracing larva and its eradication be further expedited besides focusing on hotspots where dengue suspects cases are being reported from, equally giving attention towards the places where larva has been detected during current checking.
The SpltNPV-Pak-BNG isolate has a median lethal dose (LD50) of 1.88x104 OBs / larva and a median survival time (ST50) of 108 h post infection (hpi) in 4th instar larvae of S litura (Ali et al., 2018b).
