Abstract:The effects of starvation in different instar larvae were studied on the development and reproduction of Hyphantria cunea. Short time starvation in the 2nd instar larvae had no significant effects on the development and reproduction. Twoday, 4-day and 6-day starvation in the 4th instar larvae showed the higher larval mortality, the longer duration of larval stage, and the lower ratio of pupation, eclosion and fecundity. Fourday starvation in the 6th instar larvae showed a bit lower ratio of survival, pupation, eclosion and fecundity. Twelveday starvation in the 6th instar larvae caused that 70% larvae pupated ahead without web outside, which had greatly lower ratio of eclosion and mating, and less egg amount.
