Abstract:

Biological studies conducted during 2017-18 at the Post Graduation Research laboratory, Department of Entomology, Agricultural College, Naira on Diamondback moth, Plutellae xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) revealed that the egg period (incubation period) varies from 2 to 4 days (Av. 3 ± 0.5 days). The larva passed through four different instars. The first, second, third and fourth instar larva lived for 2 to 3 days (Av. 2.5 days), 2 days (Av. 1.5 days), 1 to 3 days (Av. 1.75 ± 0.25 days) and 2 to 4 days (Av. 2.75 ± 0.25 days), respectively with a total larval period of 7 to 12 days (Av. 9 days). The pre-pupal and pupal stage lasted for 1 - 2 days (Av. 1.5 ± 0.5 days) and 3 to 5 days (Av. 4.25 ± 0.25 days), respectively. The adults lived for 3 to 7 days (Av. 4.5 ± 1 days) and the entire life span under laboratory conditions varied from 13 to 22 days (Av. 17.75 ± 0.25 days).
