  1. * Data are shown as Mean ± SE for 64 individuals. L7 to L11 represents 7 to 11 days after the larvae transferred to one of the three diets. Different capital or small letters after values indicate significant differences at P < 0.01 or at P < 0.05 among different treatments by a repeated measures ANOVA and Duncan's multiple range test (DMRT).
