Estimates of gypsy moth (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) mortality at two sample heights following application of gypsy moth nuclear polyhedrosis virus






Journal of Entomological Science 30(4): 507-510

Estimates of gypsy moth (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) mortality at two sample heights following application of gypsy moth nuclear polyhedrosis virus

Larvae of Lymantria dispar were collected from understorey/lower canopy and from mid- to upper-canopy foliage of an oak (with Hamamelis virginiana understorey) forest, in Maryland in May 1994, that had been treated with nuclear polyhedrosis virus (Gypchek) 4-5 days before. The larvae were then maintained for 4 weeks and studied. Larval mortality was recorded weekly and cadavers were examined for viral occlusion bodies.
