Abstract/Contents:"The life history in New Brunswick is described. In laboratory tests females were found capable of laying more than 1,400 eggs. When the two sexes were reared at the same temperatures, there were no significant differences between them in the number of larval molts or in the duration of the various stadia. However, under partial starvation conditions, 86% of the females molted seven times rather than six, as compared with 33% of the males. Seven molts occurred also in both sexes, when larvae were reared in a temperature range minimal for their development, and the head-capsule width of such seventh-instar larvae was less than that of sixth-instar larvae reared at higher temperatures. Less than 1% of the armyworms reared at Fredericton from 1953 to 1958 were parasitized, but 14 hymenopterous and 11 dipterous species were reared from them."
