Pink bollworm: diapause in the equatorial regions of Brazil



Pink bollworm: diapause in the equatorial regions of Brazil



Southwestern Entomologist 104: 283-288



The diapausing habits of the cotton pest Pectinophora gossypiella in the equatorial regions of Brazil were examined in 1982-84. It was found that larvae entered diapause in the region, but the incidence was very low and of a short duration. Sixty days after removal from bolls, less than 1.5% of the larvae were in diapause at a latitude of 7.0-7.5 degrees S, and by the 120th day percentage diapause had dropped to 0.30.
