Abstract Total lipids in individual mosquitoes can be determined by extraction with chloroform-methanol followed by reaction with sulfuric acid and a vanillin-phosphoric acid reagent. By subtracting the lipids determined in a starved population, the method is suitable to establish variations of lipid reserves in field populations.
