Pro Experimentis


A method for the individual rearing of the codling mothLaspeyresia pomonella is described. The method allows the collection of exactly dated eggs and the rearing of a large number of larvae in a small space. By using the second medium described, it is possible to watch all developmental stages at any time without disturbing them. The average larval survival rate is 70–80%.
