Clover stem borers, Languria mozardi Latreille, were reared at constant temperatures ranging from 12° to 39°C on artificial diet. Development times were inversely proportional to temperature between 12 and 35°C and increased above 35°C. The duration of preimaginal development (egg to adult) varied from 90.5 d at 15°C to 20.9 d at 35°C. The optimal temperature for development was about 30°C. Parameter values were reported for the Weibull distribution fitted to mean normalized development times… CONTINUE READING
