Effect of Temperature and Treatment Conditions on the Mortality of Epiphyas postvittana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Exposed to Ethanol
Mortality responses were determined for 5th-instar lightbrown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana (Walker), in the presence and absence of apples to immersion in ethanol solutions and exposure to ethanol vapor at a range of concentrations, treatment times, and temperatures. Ethanol may have caused an initial knock-down effect in E. postvittana larvae because there was a trend for larval mortality to reduce with increased periods between treatment and assessment time when immersed at 20°C in 30 or...[Show more]
