Abstract:The plum curculio, Conotrachelus nenuphar (Herbst), has been laboratory reared in large numbers at Clemson university over a period of about 10 years. During this time the plum curculios were reared using the techniques described by Smith (1957a, 1957b), Smith and Fiori (1959), and Hays and Cochran (1963, 1964). Recently new techniques and methods for rearing were investigated and found to be better than those previously used. The following is a discussion of the changes which resulted in increased efficiency in rearing large numbers of plum curculios.
