In the context of evaluating the sexual performance of sterile males, 2 prior studies investigated the frequency of female remating in Z.
This study examined remating by wild females of the melon fly, Zeugodacus cucurbitae (Coquillett), that mated with a wild male or a sterile male, had subsequent opportunity to oviposit, and then were presented with wild males at 1, 10, or 20 d intervals after the initial mating.
The fact that some level of female remating and multiple paternity is possible in this species indicates that sperm competition is a component of sexual selection in P.
She did a similar experiment to see if infertile sperm delay remating in fruit flies.
Remating, plus the common pattern of sperm precedence (e.g., in many insects a female fertilizes most eggs with sperm from her most recent mate), creates a clear three-way conflict among sequentially mating males and between the sexes.
However, for Tap-7 males, there is no information on how pupal age at irradiation and male mating history can affect female post-copulatory behavior such as remating.
(1993) these males are also deficient for the sex peptide, which is a peptide component of the accessory gland secretion that stimulates female oviposition and inhibits remating (Chen 1991).
cucurbitae is a common phenomenon, and remating frequencies are influenced by factors such as duration of the first mating (Yamagishi & Tsubaki 1990; Kuba & Ito 1993), the strain (I.
carolinus females were captured and labeled as displaying either the typical receptive female flash or the more rhythmic walking/flashing flash to determine if flash behavior indicated future mating, remating and oviposition outcomes.
Remating in the melon fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett), was inhibited at the same rate in females mated to either normal or sterile males as long as copulation was not terminated prematurely (Kuba & Ito 1993).
Sterile males of the Mediterranean fruit fly exposed to ginger root oil induce female remating: implications for the sterile insect technique (Diptera: Tephritidae).
