Effect of Insecticide on the Irradiated Tropical Warehouse Moth, Cadra cautella (Walker) (Lepidoptera:Phycitidae)

Saiful Islam Faruki and Ataur Rahman Khan

The effects of the synthetic pyrethroid, Fenom® on the gamma-irradiated Tropical Warehouse Moth, Cadra cautella (Walker) (Lepidoptera:Phycitidae) larvae have been studied. Both the insecticide and gamma irradiation either singly or in combination, significantly increased larval mortality and developmental periods. The pupation and adult eclosion, reproductive potential and longevity of the adults from treated larvae were significantly decreased.
