Technical Abstract: Structures of Aspergillus restrictus containing high levels of restrictocin were resistant to feeding by Carpophilus freemani compared to equivalent structures of non-restrictocin-producing Aspergillus nidulans. At 1000 ppm, restrictocin was toxic to larvae of C. freemani and S. frugiperda and antifeedant to S. zeamais, but did not affect adult C. freemani or H. zea larvae.
