Abstract: The "population cage" of 40×40×40cm in size was constructed for Aedes albopictus to study the growth pattern of laboratory populations, and the changes in population density was examined for 15 weeks. Long-term and within-week fluctuations were found in the larval population. The density dependent death of young larvae was one of the factors resulting in the within-week fluctuation. The adult female population increased gradually with small fluctuations and the maximum density of 98 was observed. The finite rate of female population increase was calculated as 1.149 per week. It was considered that this "population cage" could be used effectively in the population study of Ae. albopicuts.
