Lack of response of cabbage looper corn earworm and fall armyworm moths to 28 118 and 337 micrometers laser radiation


, : Lack of response of cabbage looper corn earworm and fall armyworm moths to 28 118 and 337 micrometers laser radiation. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 70(2): 234-236

Adult of cabbage looper Trichoplusia ni (Hubner) and corn earworm Heliothis zea (Boddie) were irradiated with 28, 118 and 337 .mu.m laser emissions, and fall armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) with 337 .mu.m emission. When the laser radiation was directed along the longitudinal axis of a plastic tube containing 10 pairs of insects, there was no significant increase or decrease in the number of insects in the quarter-section of the tube nearest the laser during the 1 h treatment period. Pairs of corn earworm maintained in 337 .mu.m radiation displayed mating percentages similar to control groups.
