Mating competitiveness of Dacus zonatus (Saunders), when irradiated as mature pupae at 9 kR or as 1-day-old adults at 12 kR and caged with normal flies, was determined under laboratory conditions. The normal males were about thrice more competitive than the males irradiated in pupal stage. The irradiation of males as 1-day-old adults showed an improvement over pupal irradiation, but still they were half as competitive as the normal males. The normal males, males irradiated as pupae and adults… Expand
