Improvement in mass rearing technique of green lacewing Chrysopa sclestes Banks (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)

Improvement in mass rearing technique of green lacewing Chrysopa sclestes Banks (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)

Gujarat Agricultural University Research Journal 14(1): 1-4

A simplified technique for mass-rearing Chrysopa scelestes (Brinckochrysa scelestes) was developed in India. The larvae were reared in groups of 50-100, 150-200 and 250-300 in round galvanized iron sheet cages 35 cm in diameter and 10 cm high. Eggs of Corcyra cephalonica were fed to the larvae at different rates (800, 1000 and 1300 eggs/larva). The results showed that at the highest feeding rate, the best group size was 150-200 larvae, with an average of 80.38% reaching the adult stage.
