A Laboratory Method for rearing the Spruce Budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)



A Laboratory Method for rearing the Spruce Budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)



Canad. Ent, Ottawa, 86: 9, 423-428



Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.) is normally difficult to rear in the laboratory since it passes through only one generation a year, the larvae remain in diapause for about ten months, mortality is high, and its natural food (young shoots of Abies and spruce) is available for a relatively short period, but a method that enabled several generations to develop during the year and provided ready access to the cultures was devised in Canada.
