Host-induced oviposition preferences and oviposition markers in the cowpea weevil, Callosobruchus maculatus



Host-induced oviposition preferences and oviposition markers in the cowpea weevil, Callosobruchus maculatus



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 742: 242-245



The bruchid Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) chemically marks its host seeds at each oviposition event. Females reared on azuki beans (Vigna radiata (Phaseolus radiatus)) laid a greater percentage of their eggs on that host than did females reared on pigeon peas (Cajanus cajan), when both hosts were provided as oviposition substrates.
