Abstract:A simplified technique is described for rearing larvae of Fannia canicularis (L.) and for stimulating oviposition with the same medium. Procedures for routine handling of the adults also arc discussed. The average pupal yield (from first-in star larvae) obtained from colony stock was 90 to 100% and adult emergence from pupae ranged from 94 to 100%. Larval mortality increased progressively as the moisture content of the developmental medium was increased beyond 35% by weight.
