Comparison of artificial diets with different fatty acid sources for rearing Elasmopalpus lignosellus Zeller Lepidoptera Pyralidae Comparacao de dietas artificiais, contendo diferentes fontes de acidos graxos, para criacao de Elasmopalpus lignosellus Zeller Lepidoptera Pyralidae

Artificial diets for rearing the lesser cornstalk borer Elasmopalpus lignoselus (Zeller), containing different protein sources, and alternative fatty acid sources were compared. Results of five successive generations, including period of life cycle, mortality, fecundity, life span, and fertility indicated that the diet with 'Opaco' corn (Zea mays) meal, yeast and wheat (Triticum aestivum) germ, including colza (Brassica campestris) or sunflower, (Helianthus annuus) oils as a fatty acid source may be used to replace the standard diet, that contains linolenic or linoleic acids.

Pheromone release began 2 nights after emergence in 70% of females. Calling behaviour was limited to th...
