Studies on the fecundity and longevity of Cyrtobagous salviniae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), an effective biocontrol agent of Salvinia molesta in India



Studies on the fecundity and longevity of Cyrtobagous salviniae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), an effective biocontrol agent of Salvinia molesta in India



Journal of Biological Control 31: 62-64



Laboratory studies on the fecundity and longevity of Cyrtobagous salviniae, an effective biocontrol agent of Salvinia molesta, were carried out under greenhouse conditions at temperatures ranging between 24 and 37.75 degrees C. Females of the curculionid lived for 231 days and laid 290 eggs on average.
