Abstract:High temperature alone and combined with controlled atmospheres were effective in killing diapausing codling moth larvae, Cydia pomonella (L.). Larvae were exposed to atmospheres of air, 0.5% oxygen (O2) in nitrogen (N2), 0.5% O2 + 10% carbon dioxide (C O2) in N2, or to 98% CO2 in air, at temperatures of 39, 41, 43, or 45 and 60% RH. LT95s were estimated for each atmosphere-temperature combination and fit to an asymptotic mathematical model to describe the effect of temperature. Higher temperature caused a more rapid kill. The decreasing order of effectiveness was 98% CO2, the two 0.5% O2 atmospheres, which were intermediate in effectiveness and not substantially different from each other, and air.
