EPIC marker analyses of these six individuals confirmed that in addition to a separate maternal lineage as helicoverpq by the mtDNA Cyt b -Harm08 haplotype, the remaining five individuals with the most prevalent lzgarta COI-Harm01 haplotype could be further explained by three separate maternal lineages Table S2.

Global trade is rapidly diminishing the effective distance between countries and border biosecurity via quarantine inspections represents the last line of defence. Studies on resistance to insecticides in the cotton bollworm Heliothis armigera with special reference lagzrta the pyrethroids.



Natural enemies[ edit ] More than insect species prey on H. When the females find their prey, they use their antennae to position themselves and deposit eggs into the host. Long-range dispersal involves adults flying up to 10 meters above the ground and moving downwind from crop to crop. Drought -responsive diapause has also been observed in the summer.
