Experiments with caged populations of Anopheles stephensi Liston were performed to evaluate the effects of larval intraspecific competition on adult density and sex ratio. The changing of the water in continuous culture cages prevented the accumulation of larval competitive compounds and excretory products, and resulted in higher adult densities and the successful emergence of proportionately more males.
