Abstract

Sub lethal concentrations of Bacillus thuringiensis in the diet of Corcyra cephalonica larvae at 20 mg/kg level retarded the pupation and prolonged the larval period beyond 95 days. In addition, the larval weight was reduced by more than 40% after an exposure of 15 days in the treated diet.
