Abstract

Abstract In larvae inoculated with nucleopolyhedrosis virus and fed a normal diet, no change was observed in the total hemocyte count (THC) until day 10, when a significant decrease was detected. The THC's increased in control larvae but decreased in starved larvae. Within the first 5 days of the test the THC's in inoculated larvae were significantly higher than in starved larvae but were significantly lower than in control larvae.
