Abstract: A wild type strain of Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus, which was originated from Bangkok, Thailand and maintained at an insectarium of 25℃ and 70% relative humidity, was cured by exposing the first instar larvae to 10%, 20%, and 20-10% water solutions of tetracycline hydrochloride for 24 hrs befor food was added. Two lines of the strain have been cured of the Wolbachia infection when it was treated by 20% solution, and when treated continuously by 20% and 10% solutions respectively. Although treated and aposymbiotic (or Wolbachia free) females produced viable progeny when they mated with aposymbiotic males, the females produced no progeny when they back crossed with the original males with symbiotes. The newly established aposymbiotic strain has been maintained for over 5 generations.
