Phenacoccus solenopsis, the cotton mealy bug, has emerged as a serious pest of cotton in india, necessitating basic studies on its development and survival at different temperatures (20, 25, 30 and 35 °C) and relative humidities (rH) (65, 75 and 85 ± 1 %) levels to ascertain optimal population growth. a life table was constructed using temperature and humidity. The nymphal duration was 20.2 d at 35 ± 1 °C and 65 ± 1% rH, but lengthened to 26.6 days at 20 ± 1 °C and both rH combinations. adult… CONTINUE READING
