6 h for the prepupal and pupal stages, respectively.
7-12) were allowed to grow and develop to the prepupal stage on these rose plants.
Response variables included larval weight at 12 d and 24 d, larval duration of development and survival, prepupal and pupal weights, % emergence of adults, fecundity, and fertility.
Average prepupal development times was significantly the shortest on the jicama diet, and that the control (tuberose bulb) was significantly longer than on tuberose B, but not significantly longer than on tuberose A and tuberose C.
