The sublethal temperature (5$^{\circ}$C for 2hr) led the fifth instar larvae of beet armyworm, Spodoprern exigucr (Hiibner), to increase cold tolerance to subzero lethal temperatures ( 'rapid cold hardening' ). The strength of rapid cold hardening was, however, varied among different populations which showed different cold tolerance in response to cold temperatures. To analyse the physiological factors affecting the rapid cold hardening, hernolymph osmolalities. supercooling points, glycerol contents, and cold stress proteins were measured by treating the fifth instar larvae with the sublethal low temperatures. The treated larvae showed increase of hemolymph osmolalities and glycerol contents. Changes of the osmolalities were greater in cold-hardy strains than in cold-susceptible strains. The sublethal temperature also induced them to express the cold-stress proteins (I0 - 20kD) in the hemolymph. but did not to change supercooling points.
