Attractiveness and competitiveness of laboratory versus native strain of boll weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Attractiveness and competitiveness of laboratory versus native strain of boll weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Journal of Economic Entomology, 795: 1240-1243



The relative attractiveness and competitiveness of unsterilized individuals of a long-established laboratory strain and a native strain of Anthonomus grandis grandis were assessed in field studies in cotton in the USA. Previous studies have been performed with sterilized individuals by procedures that result in significant losses of vigour and early death, and this is reflected in low to moderate levels of field competitiveness.
