Boll weevil anthonomus grandis grandis development in mass rearing effects of temperature



Boll weevil anthonomus grandis grandis development in mass rearing effects of temperature



Environmental Entomology 9(1): 72-74



This study was made to determine whether a temperature could be found that would cause laboratory (mass) reared boll weevil, A. grandis grandis Boheman, to develop at a uniform rate (85% or more of insects pupated at the beginning of adult emergence) from eggs to adults in 11-12 days and to obtain an 85% or larger emergence of adults during a 3 day or less period but not have a decrease in yield of weevils. Three tests were conducted in which 7 developmental-period temperature regimens were used. When the rearing-medium temperature was held constant at 30.0.degree. C for the entire development period (egg to adult stage), the total development period was 2 days shorter than with the other temperature regimens studied, but the yield of adults was lower than with some of the other temperature regimens. None of the temperatures studied resulted in uniform insect development.
