Effect of temperature on average life span of Ephestia
Genetic sexing strains have so far not been developed for Lepidoptera, with the exception of balanced lethal strains for the silkworm, Bombyx mori (L.) (Lepidoptera; Bombycidae), and the Mediterranean flour moth, Ephestia
kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), following the scheme of Strunnikov (1975).
kuehniella (Zeller), Corcyra cephalonica (Strainton) Antheraea pernyi (Guerin- Meneville) and Galleria mellonella (Linnaeus) used (Smith, 1996; Bernardi et al., 2000).
Dlcyphus hesperus Knight (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae) could complete development and reproduction on mullein with or without Ephestia
kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) eggs.
Nickle (1979) used four orderly growth which are hydroprene, methoperene ,diflubenzuron, and MV-678 to control Ephestia
cautella (Walker) on peanut, they found that increasing of concentration leads to decreasing adult emergence
The parasitoid could be reared in various lepidopteran insect eggs such as Corcyra cephalonica (Stainton) (Pyralidae), Ephestia
kuehniella Zeller (Pyralidae), Antheraea pernyi Guerin-Meneville (Saturniidae), or Samia cynthia ricini Boisduval (Saturniidae).
In another study Hydroprene, Methoperane, Diflubenzuron and MV-678 were used to control Ephestia
cautella (Walker) on peanuts.
Comparative study of Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Aa and Cry1Ac delta-endotoxin activation, inactivation and insitu histopathological effect in Ephestia
kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae).
Similar results were noted with Zelus exsanguis Stal attacking Ephestia
kuehniella Zeller and Drosophila spp.
Inherited sterility in Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia
kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae): effect of gamma radiation doses on insect fecundity fertility and developmental period.
(2001) (86.8 d), in which specimens were maintained at 22[degrees]C, 75% RH and 16:8 h L:D photoperiod and were fed Mysus percicae, Aphis phabae and eggs of Ephestia
kuehniella (Zeller, 1879) (Lepidoptera, Pyralidade); and by Castro et al.
Similar findings were recorded by Barrer (1976) for Ephestia
cautella and Huang and Subramanyam (2003) for P.
