A larval dispenser-capper machine for mass rearing the southwestern corn borer


, : A larval dispenser-capper machine for mass rearing the southwestern corn borer. Journal of Economic Entomology, 735: 692-693

A food packaging machine was modified for mass rearing D. grandiosella (Dyar). It semi-automatically infests diet-filled cups with a predetermined number of larvae mixed in corn cob grits, caps the cups and moves them onto a loading tray in a continuous process. The modification of the commercial machine is simple and inexpensive. Preparation of the larvae grit mixture and operation of the machine are discussed.
