PBAN-INDUCED SEX PHEROMONE BIOSYNTHESIS IN HELIOTHIS PELTIGERA : STRUCTURE, DOSE, AND TIME-DEPENDENT ANALYSIS
A structure-activity relationship study of Hez-PBAN was performed with respect to its pheromonotropic activity, using Heliothis peltigera as the test animal. The activity of N- and C-terminallyExpand

Thermal Death Kinetics of Egg and Third Instar Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Abstract Two developmental stages of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), 24-h-old eggs and third instars, 8 d after oviposition, were subjected to thermal exposures in a heating block system, at variousExpand

Remating by female Mediterranean fruit flies (Ceratitis capitata, Diptera: Tephritidae): temporal patterns and modulation by male condition.
We determined the temporal pattern of female remating in the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata, and how mating with sterile males affects remating. In addition, we examined the hypothesesExpand

Evaluation of Entomopathogenic Nematodes for the Control of Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
The virulence of various entomopathogenic nematode (EPN) strains was evaluated against the Mediterranean fruit fly, C. capitata . The selected nematodes were assessed for their infectivity for theExpand

Spatial patterns of sterile Mediterranean fruit fly dispersal
The success of the sterile insect technique (SIT) for the control of the Mediterranean fruit fly or medfly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae), depends largely on the ability ofExpand

Arrestment ofTelenomus remus(Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) by a Kairomone Associated with Eggs of Its Host,Spodoptera frugiperda(Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Telenomus remus Nixon females, but not males, were arrested after contacting a kairomone(s) extracted from eggs of Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith). Bioassays were used to characterize theExpand
