The Effect of Temperature on Flight Initiation of Pine Processionary Moth in Bulgaria
Keywords:temperature, flight, Thaumetopoea pityocampa, summer and winter form
The purpose of the present work is to study the temperature effect on the flight initiation of the Thaumetopoea pityocampa. Our results show that the flight initiation of males is at relatively lower temperatures than females. Also, the average temperature for the flight initiation of the summer form is lower than for the winter one. This indicates a better adaptability of the summer form to lower ambient temperatures which should favour its spread in habitats located at a higher altitude in the country.
