A new labeling method for cockroaches dictyoptera blattaria

A new labeling method for cockroaches dictyoptera blattaria

Annales de la Societe Entomologique de France 18(2): 199-204

The tetrameric regeneration of the tarsus of cockroaches is used as a labeling method, and tested in P. americana. The ablation is made at the beginning of 1st instar, the regrowth is achieved by the beginning of next instar, and the label remains until adult stage. Reading the label does not require immobilization of the animal. Observations are made at 1st and 2nd instar, on groups of 4 males : one untouched, and 3 with a tarsus cut out, after hatching, from the front, median or hind leg. The rate of growth and social relations are not strongly disturbed by the labeling, which may be used to study population structure, or (associated with color marking) for long term behavior studies on groups.
