The effect of low doses of gamma radiation applied to Liriomyza trifolii Burgess eggs or 1st-instar larvae, on the ensuing flies was studied. Doses of 50 or 40 Gy resulted in very few individuals reaching the adult stage; the life span of these flies was very short and they did not breed. A 25-Gy dose applied at the 1st instar allowed the development of many individuals into adults which emerged successfully, fed, and oviposited viable eggs which completed their development to adults. © 1991, Springer Science + Business Media B.V..
