Abstract: The total and dry body weight treated larvae of Aedes aegypti was significantly decreased at different time intervals under investigation (6, 12, 24, and 48 hrs) post-treatment with LC30 of Bt subsp. Kurstaki HD-1. The body water content was decreased significantly at 6 hrs post-treatment, while it was highly significant at the three other treatments. Also hemolymph volume was significantly decreased. A significant increase in hemolymph density was observed only at 12 hrs post treatment. The main of the total hemocyte count in the treated larvae at all inspected time was highly significant increased, also there was a marked variation in the hemocytes percentage of untreated and treated larvae of Aedes eagypti at time intervals.
