A comparative study of the effects of sunflower moth diet, banded sunflower moth diet, and a modified sunflower moth diet was conducted on banded sunflower moth, Cochylis hospes Walsingham, and sunflower moth, Homoeosoma electellum (Hulst). Developmental times and survival to the pupal and adult stages were measured for each diet and pest species. Modified sunflower moth diet with incorporated sunflower leaf tissue gave faster developmental times and a higher percent pupation and adult eclosion for both sunflower moth species than either sunflower moth diet or banded sunflower moth diet. The modified sunflower moth diet that incorporates sunflower leaf tissue provides a single medium which can be used to successfully rear both species of sunflower moth.
