The fecundity of Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) in wheat was greatest at 25 to 30°C. Development of pupae was shortest at 30-32°C, and differences due to relative humidity were not significant. Optimum conditions for development, attainment of adult weight, and percentage emergence were 30-32°C and 65-80% RH.
