Temperature, irradiation and delivery as factors affecting spring-time flight activity and recapture of mass-reared male codling moths released by the Okanagan-Kootenay sterile insect programme
Laboratory flight-tunnel and field mark-release-recapture experiments were conducted to compare pheromone response, flight activity and recapture of wild codling moths, Cydia pomonella (L.), withExpand

Assessing the Mating Status of Male Obliquebanded Leafrollers Choristoneura rosaceana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) by Dissection of Male and Female Moths
Abstract We tested several methods for assessing the mating status of male obliquebanded leafrollers, Choristoneura rosaceana (Harris) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae). In four experiments, we establishedExpand

Acetic Acid Fumigation of Fruit Storage Bins to Control Diapausing Codling Moth Larvae
Fumigation with glacial acetic acid (AA) vapor successfully kills post-harvest pathogens on tree fruits and berries and reduces their spoilage in storage. In this study, we investigated whether aExpand
