Apple cultivar effects on codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) egg mortality following fumigation with methyl bromide

Maindonald, John; Waddell, Barbara; Petry, Robert


Fumigation experiments with methyl bromide (MeBr) were carried out in New Zealand over several seasons. In 1988-1989 'Braeburn', 'Fuji', 'Granny Smith', 'Red Delicious', 'Royal Gala', 'Gala' and 'Splendour' apples were infested with freshly laid eggs of codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L), and were fumigated at a range of methyl bromide doses. The concentration-time ctsum, which estimates the average methyl bromide concentration over the 120 min of fumigation, was used as the measure of exposure....[Show more]
