The effect of switching hosts on the longevity and fertility of Lygus hesperus Knight was studied. Callow adults of both sexes reared on alfalfa or broad bean (first host) were caged on tomato, mustard, wheat, or green bean (second host). Their longevity and the fertility of the females were determined for each possible combination of first and second hosts. Analysis of variance of longevity indicated highly significant differences due to sex, the second host, the two-way interactions of first and second hosts, and the three-way interactions of sex, first, and second hosts. Analysis of variance of the number of progeny indicated highly significant differences due to second host and the interaction of first and second hosts.
