Abstract: The objective of this project was to determine the proportion of third instar Sameodes albiguttalis larvae that will be killed when exposed to a constant low temperature. Test temperatures studied were +6°, +4°, +2°, -2°, -4°, and -6°C. No significant mortality resulted from exposures of either +6° or +4°C. Exposures to temperatures of +2°C or lower resulted in significant mortality. Mortality at -4° and -6°C was similar and approximately twice that observed at -2°C.
