Abstract:

This article determines the effect of temperature on humidity on the development of larvae, pupae and adults of different ages based on the sixth generation (F6) of the edible insect Tenebrio molitor L. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae). The survival properties of young (<30 mg) and adult (<100 mg) larvae, pupae and adults of Tenebrio molitor (F6) under the influence of relative humidity (RH) of 25, 50, 75 and 95% at a temperature of 10, 25, 35 and 40°C, respectively, for 6 to 48 hours. For moderate survival of young larvae (<30 mg) Tenebrio molitor (F6), relative humidity 50-75% (survival 92-99%) at 10°C, relative humidity 50-75% (survival 100%) at 25°C, relative humidity 50-75% (survival rate 92-98%) at a temperature of 35°C is considered a favorable condition, while at a temperature of 40°C and a relative humidity of 25-95% for 12-48 hours showed 100% viability for 6 hours . All other relative humidity showed a sharp loss of viability at this temperature (viability from 76% to 38%). It was noted that adult larvae (<100 mg) of Tenebrio molitor (F6) showed moderate relative humidity of 50–75% (viability 98–99%) at a temperature of 10°C for 6–48 h. At a relative humidity of 50%, the average survival periods of time was 95%, and with a relative humidity of 75%, the survival rate of 98.5% that is 3.5% more. It was found that for adult larvae (<100 mg) Tenebrio molitor (F6), a relative humidity of 25–95% is convenient at a temperature of 25°C (viability of 100%). Adult larvae (<100 mg) of Tenebrio molitor (F6) showed 100% viability, at 25-95% relative humidity for 6 h at 35°C, while larvae stored at 25% relative humidity for 12 h showed 92%, at 50-75% relative humidity they showed 100% viability, at 95% relative humidity showed 78% viability. It was noted that the average survival rate for all segments of relative humidity after 12 hours was 92%. It was noted that for the survival of adult larvae (<100 mg) Tenebrio molitor (F6), a temperature of 40°C and a relative humidity of 25–95% give a stress effect (survival rate of 32%, 44%, 63%, 77%, respectively).
