Abstract: The influence of Lugol's solution on the embryonic development and egg hatch of Argas A. reflexus at a temperature of 25C and relative humidity of 30% was investigated. The iodine compound was found to cause high mortality of eggs (23.1%) and embryos (34.8%). In these experiments only 40.9% of the eggs studied hatched into normal larvae. Intresting anomalies of Argas (A.) reflexus larvae, developed under these conditions, were also described.
