When the photoperiod was 12:12 or 15:9 (L:D) h at 22.5 degrees C, approximately 88.4 and 87.9% of oviposition occurred during the photophase. However, when the photoperiod was 10:14 (L:D) h, only 51.8% of the eggs were laid during the photophase. Oviposition occurred primarily within 2 h before the ...
