The solutions needed for any desired relative humidity were put into the desiccators at least a day before starting the experiment and the solutions were also renewed weekly to assure desired humidities. Counting the eggs and the methods of differentiating various insect instars will be illustrated in their proper places in the text. Temperatures and relative humidities were recorded daily. Under controlled conditions four constant temperatures were used viz. 20, 24, 28 and 32°C. and four relative humidities viz.

Adult insects were taken from stock cultures of infested broad beans and the seeds in which new eggs were deposited were collected directly and kept in glass tubes (lx2 inches) covered with muslin and incubated. Newly hatched larvae were isolated in separate tubes covered with muslin and fixed tightly with rubber bands. Fifty pairs of male and female adults were used in each experiment.
