Abstract:Laboratory techniques for hatching eggs of Diabrotica longicornis (Say) by utilization of physio-chemical treatments were developed. The effects of available moinsture, temperature, chemicals, substrates and adult photoperiods, in several combinations and ta varied treatment durations upon hated of D. longicornis eggs were studied. Eggs from field-collected adult beetles, caged under laboratory conditions, were used in all egg hatching experiments.
Maximum egg hatch occurred after 8 to 11 weeks at 40° F in a moist environment.
