Gamma radiation sensitivity of malathion-resistant strains of the Indian meal moth



Gamma radiation sensitivity of malathion-resistant strains of the Indian meal moth



Journal of Economic Entomology 66(2): 461-462



Laboratory tests were carried out in Georgia on the relative sensitivity of two malathion-resistant strains of Plodia interpunctella (Hb.) to gamma -radiation (from radioactive cobalt (60Co.)). Pairs of adults from each strain were treated at a dose of 5 krad, and their subsequent fecundity was compared with that of untreated pairs.
