Abstract:A simple and cheap method is described for rearing Trichogramma in very large numbers. The economic soundness of biological control of cane borer by this method is attested by the success of the results obtained. The various advantages of the method over others that have been put forward are enumerated. Beyond its simplicity, the principal advantage claimed for the method is the ease with which restocking of moth breeding houses is accomplished.
