Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti ), avector of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), population control was developed using the sterile insect technique (SIT). Sterilization process was conducted using γ-ray sterilization. To support the SIT application, the sterility of male Ae. aegypti on the 1st-5th days post sterilization were studied. The first step of this research was the sterilization process of male Ae.aegypti with 70Gy of γ-ray sterilization. Then, the sterile male Ae.aegypti mosquitoes on the 1st ; 2nd ; 3rd; 4th and 5th days after the sterilization process espectively were competed with un-irradiated males to mate with un-irradiated females. The number of eggs that were produced was incubated to determine the fertility of sterile male Ae. aegypti. The result showed that the average number of eggs produced from mating combination of sterile male Ae.aegypti mosquitoes on the 1st-5th days post sterilization, un-irradiated females and un-irradiated males was 1,135; 1,118; 1,243, 1,372 and 1,326.The average percentage number of eggs that did not hatch into larvae was 97.69%; 97.87%;90.92%, 96.20%, and 86.91%. By analysis of variance (ANOVA), the number and percentage of the unhatched eggs were not significantly different at the level confident of 95%. The research showed that the mating ability and sterility of sterile male Ae. aegypti on the 1 st - 5 th days post γ - ray sterilization show no significant difference
