The incubation period of the eggs averages between 6 and 7 days and development through the five nymphal stages requires approximately 23 days. Such development will not occur in the absence of seed material of cotton or other host plant. Under laboratory conditions adults lived for periods up to 121 days on dehusked sunflower seed and water.
