Emergence and mating behavior of the oriental fruit moth Cydia molesta (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) and its potential for reproduction
Investigation of adult emergence, mating, and reproduction of the Oriental fruit moth showed that females engaged in mate choice and males engaged inmate competition, affecting egg production, a factor that may be used to enhance mating disruption technology against Cydia molesta. Expand
Sequential loss of genetic variation in flea beetle Agasicles hygrophila (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) following introduction into China
Data show that sequential introduction influenced the genetic diversity of populations in China, and Beetles in Kunming had the highest gene flow with those in Guangzhou, and therefore lowest differentiation and closest genetic distance. Expand
The Effect of Photoperiods and Light Intensity on Mating Behavior and Reproduction of Grapholita molesta (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
It was found that oriental fruit moth adults with an 8, 9, or 10 h scotophase showed considerably more courtship behavior than those in other photoperiod treatments, and the number of eggs laid daily by females was significantly influenced by female age, decreasing with greater age. Expand
