Abstract:A surrogate leaf for oviposition developed for Manduca sexta (Johannson) compared favorably with host plants, wild moths preferred the surrogate leaves treated with tobacco extract to those treated with tomato extract, but otherwise the responses of wild and colony moths were similar. A comparison between artificial and winter-grown plants indicated that a relationship existed between plant vigor and the oviposition response of tobacco horn worm moths.
