Abstract:Larvae of 7-day-old European corn borers, Ostrinia nubitalis (Hübner), were fed media that was topically treated with 0.2 ml of diluted tepa and apholate. Dilutions of tepa at 75 and 8.5% and apholate at 7.5% active ingredient sterilized the emerging adult males. Tepa reduced mating of adults.
