Effect of storage of cocoons of Epiricania melanoleuca Fletcher on the emergence of moths, their fecundity and hatchability of these eggs

Effect of storage of cocoons of Epiricania melanoleuca Fletcher on the emergence of moths, their fecundity and hatchability of these eggs

Indian Sugar 43(9): 705-711

Fresh, 2-, 4- and 6-day-old cocoons of the parasitoid Epiricania melanoleuca were stored at low temperature levels, varying from 5.0 to 15.0 degrees C. When stored at 5.0 degrees C, there was no adult emergence, whereas at 12.5 degrees C it was normal. Storing of cocoons at 15.0 degrees C was unfavourable. Complete adult emergence took place within a period of 15 days inside the incubator.
