The establishment of N. cervinus in areas outside its native range may indicate adaptation to drier and cooler conditions, and parthenogenesis would be advantageous for the colonization of new environments by preventing the breakup of successful gene combinations.
Translocation of chlorantraniliprole and cyantraniliprole applied to corn as seed treatment and foliar spraying to control Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
The translocation of chemical insecticides in corn plants could enhance the control of Spodoptera frugiperda, based on their application form, and the absorption and redistribution capacity of chlorantraniliprole and cyantranILiprole throughout the plant confer a prolonged residual action with satisfactory control of S. frug Piperda.
