Abstract:

A new artificial diet with local ingredients for codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), mass rearing in Syria is described.  It is a modification of a diet originally developed by Brinton et al. (1969).  Gluten was replaced by a 1:1:1 mixture of corn, barley and wheat flour.  Wheat germ was replaced by barley germ and canola meal was replaced by soybean meal.  Paper pulp and sawdust were replaced by cotton seed hull and wheat straw, respectively.  The amount of water was also readjusted.  Adult moths produced on the diet were significantly heavier than those reared on green apples.  Their fecundity, fertility, longevity, flying ability, rate of development and survival to the adult stage were unaffected.
