Role of Moth Scales Remain on the Top of Egg Masses of Spodoptera littoralis and its Interference with the Performance of the Natural Bio-product Spinosad
S.A. Temerak

Abstract:
During the peak of egg deposition of Spodoptera littoralis (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae), the ratio of naked to medium-covered to fully-covered egg masses was 10:2:1, respectively. Also, the ratio between egg masses located on the upper to the lower surface of the cotton leaf was 0.5:99.5, respectively. Based on laboratory test, performance of spinosad on naked egg masses was faster and greater than on fully-covered egg masses. Results of LC50 were 2.43-0.18 ppm for naked and 38.36-2.59 ppm for fully-covered egg masses at 12 and 24 h after hatching, respectively. Fully-covered eggmasses may indicate a false resistance to spinosad of the same host insect strain.
