Cannibalistic behaviour of Heliothis armigera (Hubn.)

Twine, P.H. (1971) Cannibalistic behaviour of Heliothis armigera (Hubn.). Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 28 (2/3). pp. 153-157.



Trials conducted with larvae of Heliothis armigera (Huhn.) showed that cannibalism is a major regulatory factor at high density populations and of less importance at lower densities. Larvae while feeding attack one another and completely devour the maimed individuals with only the head capsules remaining.
