Abstract: Life tables of two strains of Aedes albopictus originated from Nagasaki, Japan and Chiangmai, Thailand were examined in the laboratory conditions of 27℃, 75% R.H. and 16L:8D. The developmental period (egg to adult) in females of Chiangmai strain tended to be shorter than in those of Nagasaki strain. The body sizes of femals were not significantly different between the two strains. Since females of Nagasaki strain took blood meals more frequently and produced more eggs per blood meal than those of Chiangmai strain, a marked difference was observed in m_x-curve between the two strains. l_x-curve of females in the two strains were similar and no significant differences were observed in the longevity of the females. Nagasaki strain showed larger values of the net reproductive rate and the intrinsic rate of increase, and longer mean generation time than Chiangmai strain.
