The effects of fast neutrons on the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann)


, : The effects of fast neutrons on the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann). VIII International Plant Protection Congress, Moscow 1975 Reports and informations Section V Biological and genetic control: 53-62

Laboratory tests were carried out in Italy on the effect on Ceratitis capitata (Wied.) of exposure to fast neutrons. Males were generally more sensitive to treatment than were females. The doses required to prevent adult emergence were 761, 761, 1521 and more than 2979 rad for eggs, newly hatched larvae, full-fed larvae, and pupae 3 days old, respectively. Exposure of pupae or adults to 2979 rad caused a high percentage of adult sterility, without affecting the length of life.
