Eclosion time and larval behavior of the tomato fruit borer, Neoleucinodes elegantalis (Guenee) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)



Scientia Agricola 60(1): 195-197



In several regions of Brazil, N. elegantalis is one of the most serious tomato pests. The moth lays eggs on the calyx or developing fruit, and, shortly after eclosion, the larvae penetrate into the fruit, where they remain until pupation. Once the larvae have entered the fruits, insecticides and biological control agents are relatively ineffective. N. elegantalis is most susceptible to conventional treatments when the larvae are outside the host tissues (or fruit).
