Laboratory bioassay to assess toxicity of insecticides to Diabrotica larvae



Laboratory bioassay to assess toxicity of insecticides to Diabrotica larvae



Journal of Economic Entomology 75(2): 220-222



A laboratory bioassay test that was developed during studies in the USA for assessing the toxicity of soil applications of insecticides to larvae of the maize pest Diabrotica sp. is described. Eggs of D. undecimpunctata undecimpunctata Mannh. were placed in insecticide-treated soil along with maize seeds. Seed germination and plant development preceded hatch, which ensured a readily available food source for the subsequent larvae.
