Mating Success and Spermatophore Composition in Western Corn Rootworm (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
It was found that virginFemale beetles on a corn diet lived significantly longer than mated female beetles on the same diet and the stable isotope analysis determined that nitrogen provided to the female in the spermatophore was incorporated into the eggs.
Evaluating Western Corn Rootworm (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Emergence and Root Damage in a Seed Mix Refuge
TLDR
The proportion of beetles emerging from refuge plants was significantly greater in a block and strip refuge structure than in a seed mix refuge, and more beetles emerged from Bt-RW corn plants when they were grown as part of a seed mixture.
Identification of a volatile attractant forDiabrotica andAcalymma spp. from blossoms ofCucurbita maxima duchesne
TLDR
Field-trapping bioassays were conducted which indicated that indole is a potent attractant of the western corn rootworm, D. virgifera virGifera, and the striped cucumber beetle, Acalymma vittatum.
