Quality control in insect mass production: a review and model

, : Quality control in insect mass production: a review and model. Bulletin of the Entomological Society of America 35(4): 33-44

The development of insect colonization, strain maintenance and quality control principles are discussed, followed by a model for mass production of Lepidoptera based on the noctuid Spodoptera frugiperda.
