Laboratory and insectary studies on the use of antibiotics and anti microbial agents in mass rearing of boll weevils anthonomus grandis grandis



Laboratory and insectary studies on the use of antibiotics and anti microbial agents in mass rearing of boll weevils anthonomus grandis grandis



Journal of Economic Entomology 73(1): 106-110



Antibiotics were used to shield the growth medium of larvae of A. grandis grandis Boheman from microbial contamination without detectable adverse effects on boll weevil development, egg production, hatch and male pheromone production. The standard diet overlain with medicated sand yielded 86-97% newly-emerged weevils with less than 500 bacteria/weevil as compared with 18% from diet with unmedicated sterile sand.
