The duration of the pre-oviposition, post-oviposition and oviposition
periods were determined considering the pairing, in the day of adult emergence.
litura to check feeding and oviposition
The peak oviposition
age was shortened by increasing temperatures (from 42 d at 20 [degrees]C to 13 d at 32 [degrees]C), and the peak oviposition
rate was about 4 eggs per d at 26 [degrees]C.
preference test (%) was performed according with Marteleto et al., (2009), in which 16 seeds, four of each genotype, were simultaneously offered for oviposition
to a C.
We discovered the oviposition
site described in this paper opportunistically in the course of fieldwork on a landscape-scale study.
Hovering Performance: Hovering period, response to ecological factors, selection of oviposition
site and impact of host plants of these three species was explored in field of brassica crop.
The goal of the starvation period is to standardize recent feeding to first oviposition
(Maxwell 2000; Barry et al.
Here, we describe the agonistic (male-male interactions) and reproductive (male-female interaction) behaviors of this cricket, highlighting pair-formation, courtship, post-copulatory, and oviposition
The experiment was conducted under controlled conditions (25[+ or -]1[degrees]C, 70[+ or -]10% relative humidity [RH] and 12h of photophase), being 200 eggs for each diet, individualized on the first day after oviposition
by cutting part of the substrate and placing it on damp filter papers, which were in turn placed in petri dishes until larval eclosion.
The efficacy of the system to inhibit oviposition
was confirmed by the Ae.
traps have been used for Aedes (Ae.) aegypti population surveillance,4 but the dengue control programmes in many countries do not consider the oviposition
trap to be an effective method as it is influenced by ecological/environmental and climatic variables.5 So, these variables deserve special attention in larval surveillance pre-programmes.
