Abstract Baculoviruses induce hypermobility and tree-top
disease in their caterpillar hosts to enhance their
transmission. Previously, we showed that the baculovirus
SeMNPV induced tree-top disease at 3 dpi in
Spodoptera exigua larvae and that light from above
plays a key role in triggering this behaviour. Here we
found that light was needed between 43-50 h post
infection to induce tree-top disease. We also showed
that light before this period did not affect the
final positions where the larvae died.
