Abstract:
The present investigations on the effects of different foods on the biological parameters of Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) were studied in laboratory. The highest larval and pupal weights were observed on D2 (Armes diet) and it was significantly superior over other two diets. The larval and pupal periods were found significantly lowest on D2 (Armes diet) followed by D3 (Cowpea + Corn diet) and both the artificial diets were found significantly superior on D1 (maize leaves). Significantly highest fecundity and egg hatchability of S. frugiperda were recorded on D1 (maize leaves). In this respect treatment D2 was found superior over D3. Significantly highest male longevity was recorded on D1 (maize leaves). It was followed by D2 (Armes diet) and both these treatments were found statistically superior over D3. The effects of various diets on female longevity, however found statistically non significant.
