The Biology and Ecology of the Diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) in Eastern Ontario Revisited

It is reaffirmed that diamondback moth may not be capable of overwintering in Ottawa with populations likely migrant-driven and the population dynamics and parasitoid community appear to be unaltered after 65 years.

Interaction entre la teigne du chou Plutella xylostella (L.) et ses principaux parasitoïdes en conditions tropicales : approche éthologique, écologique et évolutive

L'espece Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera : Plutellidae) defoliatrice des choux constitue surtout un probleme dans les regions tropicales et subtropicales. La lutte chimique a rapidement montre

Ultra Structural Studies of the Ovaries of Susceptible and Insecticide-Resistant Plutella xylostella (Linnaeus)

The present study aimed to compare the ultra-structural changes in ovaries of susceptible and insecticide-resistant P. xylostella to reveal reduction in dimensions i.e. length, breadth and consequent size of the ovarian follicle in resistant moths as compared to the susceptible one.

Elusively overwintering: a review of diamondback moth (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) cold tolerance and overwintering strategy

According to cold tolerance data and observations from key overwintering studies in eastern North America, the diamondback moth likely overwinters in a quiescent state in no specific overwintered stage and is chill susceptible.

Potential of Entomopathogenic Fungi as Biological Control Agents of Diamondback Moth (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) and Compatibility With Chemical Insecticides

The results suggest that the use of these isolates is an important alternative in the pesticidal management of P. xylostella, with the possible exception of the associated use of chemical controls using the active ingredients thiamethoxam or azadirachtin.

Interaction between Short-Term Heat Pretreatment and Fipronil on 2nd Instar Larvae of Diamondback Moth, Plutella Xylostella (Linn)

The results suggested that pretreatment of the tested insects at 30 °C for 2, 4 and 8h could somewhat decrease the toxicity of fipronil at all set concentrations and cooperative virulence index (c.f.) may be adopted in hormetic effect assessment.

Evidence is provided that P. xylostella is capable of overwintering on suitable host plants in southeastern Australia, and the overwintered populations may contribute significantly to local population levels in spring and summer seasons.



Biology of the Diamondback Moth, Plutella maculipennis (Curt.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae), in Eastern Ontario. II. Life-History, Behaviour, and Host Relationships

The diamondback moth, Plutella maculipennis (Curt.), is one of three species of Lepidoptera that annually cause serious commercial damage to cabbage and related crops in Ontario. It has long been

Susceptibility of Four Strains of the Diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella L., against Insecticides

4種有機リン殺虫剤, 2種カーバメート殺虫剤, カルタップおよびフェンバレレートを用い, コナガ4系統の薬剤感受性を局所施用法により調べた. 殺虫剤抵抗性2系統では3種 (フェンソエート, プロチオフォス, サイアノフォス) の有機リン殺虫剤に高度の抵抗性を, 2種 (アセフェート, メソミル) のカーバメート剤とカルタップに中程度の抵抗性を示した. しかし,

Photoperiodism and Fecundity in Plutella maculipennis (Curt.)

Findings on the population dynamics of the diamondback moth, Plutella maculipennis, at Ottawa indicate that fecundity is influenced by photoperiod.
