Differential sterility induced by gamma radiation in the adult male of six strains of Ephestia cautella



Differential sterility induced by gamma radiation in the adult male of six strains of Ephestia cautella



Journal of Biological Sciences Research 16(1): 217-226



Since the use of ionizing radiation is under consideration in Iraq for the control of insects in stored dates, the responses of young males of 6 different strains of the pyralid Ephestia cautella to gamma-radiation at 10-50 krad were tested in the laboratory. The treated males were afterwards mated to virgin females of the same strain, and fecundity, fertility and mating frequency were determined.
