Technology for mass rearing Pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Gellichidae).The technology is economical and suitable for mass rearing of pink bollworm under control condition through out the year
Pink Bollworm Rearing
Mass rearing technology for brinjal shoot and fruit borer (BSFB), Leucinodes orbonalis (Guenee) (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Crambidae) to evolve its effective control. The technology is economical and suitable for mass rearing of brinjal shoot and fruit borer, Leucinodes orbonalis under control condition through out the year
Fruit Fly Rearing
Mass rearing technology for five species of Bactrocera (Insecta: Diptera:Tephritidae) of quarantine importance viz. Oriental fruit fly B. dorsalis Hendel, Peach fruit fly B. zonata Saunders, Guava fruit fly B. correcta Bezzi, Melon fruit fly B. cucurbitae Coq, and B. tau Walker. This technology is convenient for rearing starting from egg lying till pupation and does not require separate provisions for eggs laying, larvae rearing and pupation.
RNAI for Insect Control
Bacterially expressed double stranded RNA for the control of Helicoverpa armigera and Spodoptera litura.The technology offers a potential insecticide target for sprayed or plant mediated RNAi
