Abstract: A mathematical formula was derived to describe the parous rate as a function of basic population parameters of mosquitoes. The formula includes 4 parameters, the daily survival rate of adults, the number of gonotrophic cycles per life time, the length of a gonotrophic cycle and the finite rate of population increase. Using the formula, some simulation studies were made to compare the sensitivity of the parous rate to these 4 parameters. The importance of the daily survival rate of adults and the length of a gonotrophic cycle depends largely on the finite rate of population increase. The parous rate is more sensitively influenced by these two parameters when populations are decreasing than when they are stable or increasing. The number of gonotrophic cycles per life time is effective only when it is smaller than 7, therefore, its importance seems to be negligible in most of mosquito species.
