Table 1 Mortality induced by different volumes of injection. The disruptive effect of injection volume was estimated by testing three different volumes (46, 23 and 5 nl) of cathepsin-L dsRNA, bacterial LacZ control dsRNA, or water. For each tested volume, 20 L3 were injected and the mortality within the two days following the injection was measured and expressed as a percentage of injected aphids.
