- ... Electric grid traps baited with Heliothis subflexa (Guenée), H. virescens (F.), or H. zea (Boddie) females captured conspecific males with few exceptions.Heliothis subflexa females reduced the attraction ofH. virescens and H. zea males when used as bait simultaneously with females of either of these two species. Backcrosses were made with H. virescens males and female hybrids from a cross between ...

- ... Four classes of cotton constituents -- condensed tannins, flavonoids, terpene aldehydes and cyclopropenoid fatty acids -- were isolated from leaves and parts of squares and fed to Lepidopterous larvae in an artificial diet. The ED₅₀ required for growth inhibition of Heliothis virescens, H. zea and Pectinophora gossypiella larvae ranged from 0.1 per cent to 0.7 per cent of the weight of the diet. T ...
