Insect Pests of Bamboos in Asia (Part 2)


INBAR_Technical_Report_No13_02..PDF32
Eggs, which are laid in clusters on the back surface of
leaves in the upper crown, take about a week to hatch.
Larvae remain in leaf cases for 11 months, feeding in
groups at the first two instars and individually
thereafter. The third instar larvae diapause in leaf cases
during summer and winter months and become active
in early March (Xu Tiansen 1989, 1992a; Nakahara
and Kobayashi 1963).
