Indoor artificial rearing technique of Spodoptera frugiperda.

Abstract

Objective: The paper was to develop a standardized rearing technique of Spodoptera frugiperd, a. Method: A set of simple, practical and longterm scale standard feeding technique was summarized through indoor rearing of S. frugiperda from the aspects of feeding vessels, artificial feed components, feeding methods and procedures, notes, etc. Result: S. frugiperda population maintained under the standard rearing technique for successive five generations which had high fitness parameters. Conclusion: The new feed formula and rearing technique are suitable for massive rearing of S. frugiperda, which also provide a reference for scale rearing of other Noctuidae insects.
