Q. Where can I find information on degree-days for each species?

A. You will have to undertake a pretty extensive search to find what little we know concerning degree-days of different insect species. Most of these data come from studies of individual species and might include known data from closely related species. Very little is known, and the data we have is from only a handful of species. This information is widely scattered in articles published in scientific journals, graduate theses, or other reports.

I know of no publication that contains any extensive lists of these data.

If you have a question, please feel free to contact me.
