Insects fed on the control had lower larval viability compared to insects fed with diets containing sodium benzoate, formaldehyde and 2-phenylphenol, and lower pupal viability compared to insects fed with diets with sodium benzoate, formaldehyde, potassium sorbate and 2-phenylphenol (Table 2).
Regarding the larval period, larvae fed in the control took longer to complete this phase of development, differing significantly from those fed diets containing sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and 2-phenylphenol (Table 3).
Pupae from larvae fed with sodium benzoate and 2-phenylphenol were heavier than those fed with formaldehyde (Table 3), which could be explained by a possible phagostimulant action of these anti-contaminants, which would provide a higher dietary intake by the larvae in the feeding process and as a consequence an increase in the pupae weight, or even, these products could, due to their specific action, have protected the diet from the qualitative degradation, which may have favored the ingestion, conversion and use of the food by the insect, leading to the production of better quality insects.
saccharalis larvae fed with diet containing 2-phenylphenol and formaldehyde, differing from those that parasitized larvae fed with a diet containing sodium benzoate (Table 6).
