Ability of first instar larvae of the Indian-meal moth, Plodia interpunctella Hubner, to reach their food



Ability of first instar larvae of the Indian-meal moth, Plodia interpunctella Hubner, to reach their food



Medical Entomology and Zoology 51(4): 283-287



To evaluate the ability of hatching larvae of the Indian-meal moth, P. interpunctella, to reach their food, they were presented with open food containers (3 cm diameter, 5 cm high) and closed ones with a pinhole of 0.495 mm diameter in each cap. When the food containers were 10 cm away from the eggs, 100% of the hatching larvae reached the food and 31% of them were found in the closed containers.
