We examined inherited sterility effects on the F 1 and F 2 generations of the cactus moth, Cactoblastis cactorum (Berg) after gamma sterilization. Our objectives were to identify the dose of gamma radiation that would fully sterilize F 1 -generation moths and result in no viable offspring when F 1 males were inbredor out-crossed to fertile females, and that would allow maximum production of F 1 sterile C. cactorum adults by irradiated males. Newly emerged adults of C. cactorum were exposed to… CONTINUE READING
