Table 2 Percentage of adult emergence of weevil embryos raised within GPF

From: RNAi in the cereal weevil Sitophilusspp: Systemic gene knockdown in the bacteriome tissue

  Number of embryos per experiment % of adult emergence Development time (days)*
Experiment 1 41 34.1 37
Experiment 2 38 36.8 38
Experiment 3 42 33.9 38
Average   33.9 37.7 ± 0.74
  1. * The natural development time from the embryo to the adult of symbiotic weevils (at 27.5°C and 70 rh) is arround 30 days.
