Abstract False codling moth, Cryptophlebia leucotreta (Meyrick), male and female mature pupae and newly emerged adults were treated with increasing doses of gamma radiation and either inbred or out-crossed with fertile counterparts. For newly emerged adults, there was no significant relationship between dose of radiation and insect fecundity when untreated females were mated to treated males (N♀ by T♂). However, fecundity of treated females mated to either untreated (T♀ by N♂) or treated males… Expand
Parental and F1 sterility of Eldana saccharina Walker (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae).
To assess suitability of Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) as a pest management strategy against Eldana saccharina, laboratory reared adult males and females were exposed to increasing doses ofExpand
Radiation Biology and Inherited Sterility of Light Brown Apple Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae): Developing a Sterile Insect Release Program
TLDR
Radiation-induced deleterious inherited effects in offspring from irradiated males were expressed as increased developmental time in F1 larvae, a reduction in percent F1 female survival, decreased adult emergence and increased cumulative mortality over subsequent generations. Expand

TLDR
Based on the results of this study, 150 Gy of gamma radiation would be the optimal dose to use in a sterile insect technique and F1 sterility program against L . Expand
Sterile Insect Technique and F1 Sterility in the European Grapevine Moth, Lobesia botrana
TLDR
Based on the results of this study, 150 Gy of gamma radiation would be the optimal dose to use in a sterile insect technique and F1 sterility program against L. botrana. Expand
Gamma radiation sensitivity of the eggs, larvae and pupae of Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae).
TLDR
F(1) males from irradiated pupae were more sterile than parental males, and the same dose is required to prevent the larvae from reaching the adult stage. Expand
Radiation Biology of Eldana saccharina (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
TLDR
E. saccharina is therefore sensitive to increasing doses of ionizing radiation and this species is a suitable candidate for further development of the SIT as a component of an AW-IPM program. Expand
Inherited sterility in Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae): Effect of gamma radiation on insect fecundity, fertility and developmental period
TLDR
It was revealed that radiation did not effect the longevity of irradiated male and female adults and the level of inherited sterility in the Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella was not significantly different from untreated controls. Expand
Acceptability and suitability of eggs of false codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) from irradiated parents to parasitism by Trichogrammatoidea cryptophlebiae (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that T. cryptophlebiae would accept, successfully develop in, and emerge from FCM eggs laid by the different crosses that would theoretically be present in the field under a sterile insect release program for false codling moth and suggest that further evaluations combining releases of irradiated moths and parasitoids are warranted.

Effect of Irradiation on Mexican Leafroller (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Development and Reproduction

  • 2008
TLDR
The late pupa is the most radiotolerant stage likely to occur with exported commodities; therefore, a minimum absorbed radiation dose of 149 Gy (nominally 150 Gy) has potential as a quarantine treatment. Expand

Inherited sterility in codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae): effect of substerilizing doses of radiation on insect fecundity, fertility, and control.
TLDR
Male and female codling moths, Cydia pomonella, were treated with increasing doses of gamma radiation, and the moths were either inbred or outcrossed with fertile counterparts, shifting the F1 sex ratio shifted in favor of male progeny. Expand
Movement and impact of Trichogrammatoidea cryptophlebiae Nagaraja (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) in citrus orchards after inundative releases against the false codling moth, Cryptophlebia leucotreta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
Pest density was higher in the release areas than the control, and eggs were distributed more contagiously in the orchard with the most crop loss, and the stochastic processes governing host-egg distribution on fruit were also important. Expand
