Investigation of the control of Lymantria dispar L. (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) by treatment of the egg masses with nuclear polyhedrosis virus and verification of the results by restriction analysis of the viral DNA


, : Investigation of the control of Lymantria dispar L. (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) by treatment of the egg masses with nuclear polyhedrosis virus and verification of the results by restriction analysis of the viral DNA. Mitteilungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Allgemeine und Angewandte Entomologie 6(4-6): 525-530

This paper was presented at a meeting on general and applied entomology, held in the German Federal Republic in 1987. Field-collected egg masses of Lymantria dispar were sprayed in the laboratory with different concentrations of a nuclear polyhedrosis virus; the LC50 for hatching larvae averaged 2.7 x 107 polyhedra/ml after 12 days at 25 degrees C.

Cross-infections of L. dispar by a nuclear polyhedrosis virus of O. antiqua (OaNPV) showed that there is not only a dosage-related, but even an absolute difference in susceptibility to the virus depending on host races.
