Eosin Y which is used as a marker for the sterile Laspeyresia pomonella (L.) used in releases significantly reduced the average longevity of the males (by 0.8 days), the number of matings (by 0.5), the number of eggs per female (by 14), and the percent hatch of eggs (by 13%) in studies with nonirradiated moths. Chilling was superior to CO2 as an immobilizing agent when either agent was follwed by the staining treatment, because it did not significantly reduce the number of matings; CO2 + staining reduced the average number of matings per female by 0.8. The effect of combining the treatments was additive.
