Graphical representation of CI level in different concentration of tetracycline. We administered tetracycline for three generation, after that we reared Uzi flies without tetracycline for three generation and then crosses were made as untreated control males with different concentrations of tetracycline treated females such as 10, 20, 50 and 100 µg/ml of tetracycline to test the efficacy of tetracycline on Uzi fly Wolbachia. Finally we found that 50 µg/ml of tetracycline were suitable for curing Wolbachia in the Uzi flies that reported elsewhere.
