Optimum moisture and depth level in fine vermiculite for pupation of Oriental fruit fly Dacus dorsalis Hendel (Diptera: Tephritidae)






Pakistan Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research, 274: 233-235

Optimum moisture and depth level in fine vermiculite for pupation of Oriental fruit fly Dacus dorsalis Hendel (Diptera: Tephritidae)

Studies were conducted to determine an optimum moisture and depth level for pupation of D. dorsalis Hendel in fine vermiculite at 0, 10, 20 and 40% moisture and 1.2, 2.4 and 3.6 cm depth levels. Pupation was significantly affected at all levels of moisture and depth. Adult emergence was not significantly affected at all levels of moisture and depth. Adult emergence was not significantly different at various moisture levels and was significantly higher with depth. On the basis of percent mean pupation and adult emergence, 10% moisture at 3.6 cm depth was recorded as an optimum level for pupation of this species in fine vermiculite.
