Eight hour copulation of the melon fly,Bactrocera cucurbitae, which usually mates at dusk and finishes copulation at dawn, inhibited female remating, while 3 h copulation did not. Copulation of females with either normal or virgin sterile males inhibited female remating. Sperm-depleted sterile males inhibited female remating at the same rate as normal males when the copulation duration was 8 h, indicating that existence or amount of sperm in females' spermathecae is not important in remating… CONTINUE READING
