Tethered-flight techniques were used to investigate the flight potential of 1-d-old adult beet webworm, Loxostege sticticalis L. (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), reared at densities of1, 10, 20, 30, and 40 larvae per 650-ml jar. Larval density had a significant effect on the flight potential, including total flight duration, distance, average velocity, and longest flight duration. Adults reared at a density of 10 larvae per jar, and those reared in isolation displayed the greatest and poorest flight… CONTINUE READING
