Sensitivity of almond moth pupae to gamma radiation (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Sensitivity of almond moth pupae to gamma radiation (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 49(1): 133-140



Pupae of Ephestia cautella (Wlk.) Cadra cautella) 2, 4, 6 and 8 days old were exposed to doses of 10, 20 or 30 krad from a 60Co gamma -radiation source. Treated 2-day-old pupae were the most susceptible, followed by 4-day-old pupae.
