An auditory orientation mechanism involving the emission of high frequency sounds which are reflected back to the emitter (animal).
A membrane on the vitreal surface of the retina resulting from the proliferation of one or more of three retinal elements: (1) fibrous astrocytes; (2) fibrocytes; and (3) retinal pigment epithelial cells. Localized epiretinal membranes may occur at the posterior pole of the eye without clinical signs or may cause marked loss of vision as a result of covering, distorting, or detaching the fovea centralis. Epiretinal membranes may cause vascular leakage and secondary retinal edema. In younger individuals some membranes appear to be developmental in origin and occur in otherwise normal eyes. The majority occur in association with retinal holes, ocular concussions, retinal inflammation, or after ocular surgery. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p291)
Wormlike or grublike stage, following the egg in the life cycle of insects, worms, and other metamorphosing animals.

A genus of silkworm MOTHS in the family Bombycidae of the order LEPIDOPTERA. The family contains a single species, Bombyx mori from the Greek for silkworm + mulberry tree (on which it feeds). A native of Asia, it is sometimes reared in this country. It has long been raised for its SILK and after centuries of domestication it probably does not exist in nature. It is used extensively in experimental GENETICS. (From Borror et al., An Introduction to the Study of Insects, 4th ed, p519)
Neurons in the OLFACTORY EPITHELIUM with proteins (RECEPTORS, ODORANT) that bind, and thus detect, odorants. These neurons send their DENDRITES to the surface of the epithelium with the odorant receptors residing in the apical non-motile cilia. Their unmyelinated AXONS synapse in the OLFACTORY BULB of the BRAIN.
The ability to detect scents or odors, such as the function of OLFACTORY RECEPTOR NEURONS.
Use of naturally-occuring or genetically-engineered organisms to reduce or eliminate populations of pests.

Usually high-molecular-weight, straight-chain primary alcohols, but can also range from as few as 4 carbons, derived from natural fats and oils, including lauryl, stearyl, oleyl, and linoleyl alcohols. They are used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, plastics, and lube oils and in textile manufacture. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)
An oval area in the retina, 3 to 5 mm in diameter, usually located temporal to the posterior pole of the eye and slightly below the level of the optic disk. It is characterized by the presence of a yellow pigment diffusely permeating the inner layers, contains the fovea centralis in its center, and provides the best phototropic visual acuity. It is devoid of retinal blood vessels, except in its periphery, and receives nourishment from the choriocapillaris of the choroid. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Sexual activities of animals.
Slender-bodies diurnal insects having large, broad wings often strikingly colored and patterned.
The volatile portions of substances perceptible by the sense of smell. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
Instinctual behavior pattern in which food is obtained by killing and consuming other species.
Specialized organs adapted for the reception of stimuli by the NERVOUS SYSTEM.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
The process of laying or shedding fully developed eggs (OVA) from the female body. The term is usually used for certain INSECTS or FISHES with an organ called ovipositor where eggs are stored or deposited before expulsion from the body.
A group of ALKALOIDS, characterized by a nitrogen-containing necine, occurring mainly in plants of the BORAGINACEAE; COMPOSITAE; and LEGUMINOSAE plant families. They can be activated in the liver by hydrolysis of the ester and desaturation of the necine base to reactive electrophilic pyrrolic CYTOTOXINS.
Hormones secreted by insects. They influence their growth and development. Also synthetic substances that act like insect hormones.
Separation of the inner layers of the retina (neural retina) from the pigment epithelium. Retinal detachment occurs more commonly in men than in women, in eyes with degenerative myopia, in aging and in aphakia. It may occur after an uncomplicated cataract extraction, but it is seen more often if vitreous humor has been lost during surgery. (Dorland, 27th ed; Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p310-12).
Acyclic branched or unbranched hydrocarbons having two carbon-carbon double bonds.
Compounds with a core of 10 carbons generally formed via the mevalonate pathway from the combination of 3,3-dimethylallyl pyrophosphate and isopentenyl pyrophosphate. They are cyclized and oxidized in a variety of ways. Due to the low molecular weight many of them exist in the form of essential oils (OILS, VOLATILE).
The blood/lymphlike nutrient fluid of some invertebrates.
Disorders of increased melanin pigmentation that develop without preceding inflammatory disease.
The process of cumulative change over successive generations through which organisms acquire their distinguishing morphological and physiological characteristics.

  • The moth's larvae depend on the seeds of the yucca plant for food, and the yucca plant can only be pollinated by the yucca moth. (
  • So they get trapped and concentrated on the surface of this lipid layer in the silk moth. (
  • The polyphemus moth, Antheraea polyphemus (Cramer), is one of our largest and most beautiful silk moths. (
  • Polyphemus moths are our most widely distributed large silk moths. (
  • Secondly, do moths naturally have expensive taste? (
  • Interestingly, although the battered sallow moth naturally occurs from Alaska to central Canada and south to Colorado, there is no record of outbreaks of this species outside of Alaska. (
  • This is, in brief, the story of a moth, Biston betularia , that turned black following the industrial revolution and subsequently is turning back to its original white and black speckled pattern. (
  • Beginning in the mid-1800's, successive generations of peppered moths ( Biston betularia ) in Britain gradually darkened in response to the air pollution in the industrialized parts of the country. (
  • Information on Christmas tree pests and diseases, including pine shoot moth, pine sawfly, spruce gall adelgid, conifer seed bug, white pine weevil and spruce spider mite. (
  • Also, keep an eye out for small holes in packaging. (
  • Inspect the trees every few days, collect any fruit you find with small holes and destroy it by placing it in a sealed, black plastic bag in the sun. (
  • Small holes of a half-inch or less can be hidden by simply brushing the surrounding shag fibers over the opening. (
  • When a tree is attacked by codling moths, the fruit is blemished by small holes surrounded by dead tissue. (
  • The moth flies ( Clogmia albipunctata ) bred in the sewage system, then moved into the hospital, carrying biofilm and multidrug-resistant bacteria on their feet. (
  • Concurrently, an increase in moth flies was observed. (
  • Psychodidae, the family that encompasses moth flies, includes a few species that can cause severe health problems, including the species Psychoda alternata and Clogmia albipunctata . (
  • Observations of both moth flies and outbreaks of MDR bacteria in the hospital were not initially linked. (
  • However, a newly constructed operating room (OR) could not be opened for use for ˃2 years due to occurrence of moth flies. (
  • The results of this study suggest that spreading of MDR bacteria by moth flies could explain these outbreaks. (
  • We performed microbiologic analysis of all biofilm samples and moth flies by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry (Bruker, ) and Phoenix automated microbiology system (Becton Dickinson, ) according to European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST, ) guidelines. (
  • To visualize biofilms we used fluorescence in situ hybridization protocol on sections of embedded samples or moth flies ( Appendix ). (
  • Investigation of multidrug-resistant bacteria spread by moth flies via biofilm in a hospital, Germany. (
  • Multiple moth flies occurring through a drain of a bedpan-washer at location 6 in Table 1 . (
  • It feeds mainly on moths and flies gleaned from foliage. (
  • Take the MOTH once it flies to the lamp (E). (
  • Honeycomb moth (Galleria mellonella), mounted, dorsal view. (
  • Adult male polyphemus moth, Antheraea polyphemus (Cramer)(dorsal view). (
  • Criticisms of experimental work in the 1950s that centered on lack of knowledge of the behavior and ecology of the moth, poor experimental procedure, or artificiality in experiments have been addressed in subsequent work. (
  • Learn about moth behavior. (
  • A U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service report noted what must have been a high population of battered sallow moths eating highbush cranberry and cultivated crops in Alaska in 1976. (
  • Trichogramma brassicae is especially useful for controlling moth populations on cole crops. (
  • Closets are a hot spot for moth larvae to thrive, since the larvae lurk in dark, secluded areas. (
  • Awareness of the life cycle and feeding habits of clothing moths is the first step toward banishing them from your closets. (
  • Moths can't survive in freezing temperatures, so you'll get rid of any potential problems before they even begin. (
  • Moths cannot survive extremes of cold or heat. (
  • It's a particularly important one because neither the yucca or the moth can survive without the other. (
  • You can also place a few bay leaves in the airtight containers with your grains to keep moths away, since they are averse to the smell of these leaves. (
  • If you are concerned about clothing, fabric, or other material getting infested by moths, store them in airtight containers. (
  • To deter moths from taking up residence in your pullovers, mix up a powerful concoction of lavender oil, cinnamon oil, and clove oil-you can add a carrier oil like vegetable oil to stretch it. (
