Abstract : A method of marking insects with radioactive isotopes was developed by the laboratory of biophysics of VIZR (All-Union Institute for the Protection of Plants) and was used for the investigation of the migrations of the stink-bug (Eurygaster), the grain moth (Hadena basilinea) and its parasite - the fly Pseudogonia cinerascens.
