After virgin matings with sterile males (previously mated 0–3 times) the responsiveness of females of Anthonomus grandis Boheman to grandlure was twice that of females mated with normal males. The higher responsiveness of females mated with sterile males indicate 0–66% fewer sperm were transferred to the spermathecae and these females continued seeking other mates. After 3 matings, sperm transferred by 60CO irradiated males was reduced by 67% or more.
