The effects of feeding conditions on the fecundity and vital activities of the adults of the pine weevil-Hylobius abietis L



The effects of feeding conditions on the fecundity and vital activities of the adults of the pine weevil-Hylobius abietis L



Zoologicheskii Zhurnal. 49: 6, 862-868



Laboratory investigations were made in the Soviet Union on the effects of food-plant on the fecundity and life duration of the adults of Hylobius abietis (L.), which live for three years or more. When adult females deriving from larvae on spruce or pine were taken before emerging from the pupal cells, their weights were 0.064-0.111 and 0.113-0.232 g, their water contents 68.9 and 54%, fat contents 13.4 and 31.7% (dry weight) and protein contents 11.75 and 12.37%, respectively.
