DescriptionThe incidence of nondiapause in artificially reared red oak borers increased from 4 to 61 percent in five generations. Fecundity dropped by more than 50 percent, but fertility was unaffected. Sixty percent of the nondiapausing larvae formed prepupa by the 12th week of development in the F1 and in the F4 generations.
