Hormonal control of reproduction in the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders)



Hormonal control of reproduction in the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders)



Acta Entomologica Sinica, 254: 351-357



Laboratory studies were carried out in China on the hormonal control of reproduction in the cotton pest Pectinophora gossypiella (Saund.). The results showed that the copulatory competence of females was related to the degree of ovarian development, which was controlled by the juvenile hormone titre in the haemolymph. Topical application of the juvenile hormone analogue methoprene (ZR-515) induced ovarian development and thus promoted sexual maturity.
