Abstract:Temperature, relative humidity, and age of eggs at the time of storage affected storage life of eggs of white-fringed beetles. When 22- to 28-day-olel eggs were placed in desiccators and stored at 18.3 and 95% RH, 63.2% eclosed after 8 months. Survival rates of larvae from these eggs were significantly higher than those of larvae from eggs stored at 7.2 or 12.7 and 95% RH.
