25 females and 25 males were exposed to the magnetic field for 26 hours continuously. Prior to this, the males and females had been kept together for 24-48 hours. The table shows the number of eggs, deposited by the females whilst inside the magnet (0 g*, 1 g*, 2 g*), that went on to develop into imagoes outside the magnet. Two controls, one at 24°C and one at 14°C outside the magnet were performed.
