Effect of cocoa and pod age on egg distribution and egg parasitism of the cocoa pod borer in Malaysia


, : Effect of cocoa and pod age on egg distribution and egg parasitism of the cocoa pod borer in Malaysia. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 81(1): 81-89

The effects of pod age on oviposition and on egg and larval survival of the cocoa pest Conopomorpha cramerella were investigated. Females were allowed to oviposit on a batch of 50 pods for a period of 7 days over several exposure dates. Numbers of eggs/pod and survival to larval emergence from the pods were recorded. Pods were harvested when ripe and analysed for larval survival within the pod. The oviposition pattern varied with pod age.
