Age-related flight and reproductive performance of the light brown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana


Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 54.2: 109-115
Age-related flight and reproductive performance of the light brown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana
The relationship between flight activity, reproduction and age of the tortricid Epiphyas postvittana was studied using tethered flight assays at 23-25 degrees C and 40-50% RH. Flights began on the day of emergence, peaking on days 4 and 5 in females and on day 5 in males, and lasted for 9-10 days.
