Laboratory rearing of Pareuchaetes insulata (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), a biological control agent of Chromolaena odorata (Asteraceae)



Laboratory rearing of Pareuchaetes insulata (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), a biological control agent of Chromolaena odorata (Asteraceae)



Proceedings of the Annual Congress South African Sugar Technologists' Association (77): 200-204



Since 2001, Pareuchaetes insulata has been reared in the Insect Unit of the South African Sugar Association Experiment Station for release at selected sites in KwaZulu-Natal, by the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry's Working for Water programme. To date, more than 650 000 P. insulata larvae have been supplied to Working for Water for release against C. odorata, an extremely invasive alien plant.
