Virgin Teleogryllus commodus females show rhythmic locomotor activity in light-dark (LD) and constant light (LL) conditions. A taped 3-h calling song stimulates them into further walking, and they lay few eggs. Successful mating suppresses or reduces circadian-controlled walking, but in LL-conditions the free-run still persists. Mated females no longer respond to the 3-h calling song. The number of eggs laid within 24–72 h after insemination increases, and the three effects of mating occur… CONTINUE READING
