A new method for mass marking insects

A new method for mass marking insects

Entomologist' s Monthly Magazine 118(1420/1423): 211-212

A method for mass marking insects is described that was developed in the USA for studies on population diffusion in Diabrotica longicornis (Say), Epilachna varivestis Muls. and Acalymma vittatum (F.). The insects are immobilised on a flat screen of nylon organdie mesh by means of suction from a D-Vac machine, this being increased by masking about 60% of the mesh area. They are then marked with paint using an applicator described by T.J. Walker & S.A. Wineriter (1981).
