Viability effect on gonads of C. stollii (Wolff.) by chemosterilant treatment
Phylum Arthropoda is the largest group of animals in the kingdom, belonging to the group Hexapoda. Chrysocoris stollii (Wolff.) or litchi bug is an insect pest belonging to family Pentatomidae under Heteroptera. This particular hexapod are quiet versatile in their feeding behavior, majorly known to destroy agricultural croplands and are also capable to infect livestock by feeding on their blood. Scientists have entered a new era in research focused on pest control method. The use of chemosterilant is done in connection with new approaches to insect control. The conducted study show promising results with Thiourea as a chemosterilant in litchi bug and it’s mode of action.
