Abstract:In tests conducted in an area infested with Lymantria dispar (L.) and in an uninfested area, nonirradiated feral female gypsy moths were more attractive to feral males than were laboratory-reared irradiated and nonirradiated females. In the infested area, nonirradiated laboratory females were more attractive than irradiated laboratory females. However, in the uninfested area there was no difference between the 2 laboratory female treatments.
