Mortality of eggs and larvae of the tobacco hornworm on Jimson weed and various tobacco cultivars in Kentucky



Mortality of eggs and larvae of the tobacco hornworm on Jimson weed and various tobacco cultivars in Kentucky



Environmental Entomology 85: 802-807



Survival of the tobacco hornworm, M. sexta (L.), from egg to prepupa was 0.8, 5.7 and 2.3% but survival from the 1st instar to prepupa was 7.5, 6.5 and 3.0% when on Jimson weed Datura stromineum L. , burley tobacco and Tobacco Introduction (TI) 1298, respectively. These differences resulted primarily from differences in egg parasitism Telenomus sphingis (Ashmead) and Trichogramma minutum Riley , which was high on Jimson weed, low on TI 1298 and nil on burley tobacco.
