When incorporated into artificial diet at 3% (wet weight), milled seed of Limnanthes alba var. versicolor (Greene) C. T. Mason (Limnanthaceae) caused 100% mortality in newly hatched fall armyworm larvae, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) within 8 d. An ether extract and subsequent ethanol extract of the seed were prepared and tested at doses equivalent to 3% ground meal. The ether extract caused slower growth in larvae (weights were 6% of weights of controls after 8 d) but caused no mortality… CONTINUE READING
