Feeding and associated behaviour of the adult cabbage root fly Erioischia brassicae (Bch.) (Dipt., Anthomyiidae) under laboratory conditions

, : Feeding and associated behaviour of the adult cabbage root fly Erioischia brassicae (Bch.) (Dipt., Anthomyiidae) under laboratory conditions. Bulletin of Entomological Research 63(4): 661-671

Adults of Hylemya (Erioischia) brassicae (Bch.) reared in culture were inactive on the day of emergence but fed on carbohydrate (sucrose) and protein (Yeastrel) on day 2. With no food provided, the egg follicles increased to approximately one-third of their maximum size and were then resorbed. When food was available, females ingested surcrose on days 2 and 3 to mature the first batch of eggs, without any stimulus from mating.
