Weston PA, Rattlingourd PL (1999) Ovipositional
stimuli of Angoumois grain moth (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae), a primary pest of stored grains.
Here we describe the ovipositional
behavior of Otocryptis wiegmanni and some notes on its "test nesting" behavior, eggs and hatchlings.
preferences, damage thresholds, and detection of the tomato/potato psyllid (Bactericera cockerelli Sulc) on selected tomato accessions.
These differences could disrupt the parasitoid's host-searching, host-identification or ovipositional
behaviors, or impede larval development.
response of many Culex to the presence of Aedes albopictus larvae has not been determined, although such information could be useful for understanding the role of interspecies interaction in containers.
maculatus, such as ovipositional
behaviour, development period, and ability of newly hatched larvae to utilize the host for further growth, are effected by host attributes that could exist physically or chemically in nature.
Sukumar et al (8) listed 346 species from 276 genera and 99 families which have been tested against mosquitoes for various effects such as toxicity, growth inhibition, ovipositional
deterrency and repellency.
Copulatory behavior and ovipositional
behavior were also recorded.
Aspects of the functional, ovipositional
and starvation response of Amblyseius fallacis to prey density.
Effect of physiological condition of the host plant on the ovipositional
choice of the cabbage white butterfly, Pieris rapae.
Raguraman & Singh (1998), tested an aqueous suspension and an ethanolic extract of neem seed kernel (NSK) at 0,3, 0,6, 1,2, 2,5 and 5% concentrations for ovipositional
deterrency, feeding deterrency, toxicity, sterility and insect growth regulatory effects on larval parasitoid Bracon hebetor.
