Effects of various larval and adult diets on the american cotton leafworm alabama argillacea lepidoptera noctuidae



Effects of various larval and adult diets on the american cotton leafworm alabama argillacea lepidoptera noctuidae



Zeitschrift fuer Angewandte Entomologie 85(2): 219-224



The effect of feeding larvae of the cotton leafworm, A. argillacea, on leaves of 3 cotton varieties (2 wild and 1 commercial) upon some aspects of their bionomics were studied. The difference in moisture content of the leaves (when replaced at 24 h intervals) provoked significant differences between treatments during the first 2 generations. Significant differences were not observed in the 3rd generation when moisture content was suitable (leaves were replaced at 12 h intervals). In nature, the 3 cotton varieties were able to sustain populations of A. argillacea equally. Adult food treatments showed that 20% sugar solution was better than other treatments. Fruit trees should be able to sustain adults of this insect species in nature mainly during migrational flights.
