Effect of rearing strategy and gamma radiation on field competitiveness of mass-reared codling moths (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae).
TLDR
The best treatment for improving codling moth male field performance was a combination of rearing through diapause and using a low dose of radiation (150 Gy); the difference in performance when insects were treated with 150 or 250 Gy was greater when males had been reared using standard (nondiapause) rearing protocols, suggesting that diapsause rearing may attenuate some of the negative effects of the higher doses of radiation.
