The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of light, temperature, and humidity on the daily activity of the sweetclover weevil in the field and what effect these factors have on the rate of feeding in the laboratory.A better understanding of these factors would enable investigators to evaluate resistance in the laboratory with more precision.Weevil activity as used in this paper is the presence of the adults on the sweetclover plant. Activity rhythms refer to the rhythmic ascension and descension of the adults from the plants.
