Field liberation of insect predators and parasites offers promise for commercial control of aphids on some crops. At present, aphids are the chief food used in rearing these predators and parasites. Mass breeding of aphids is required to produce predators or parasites on the large scale needed for field tests against aphids. Some of the Aphidiinae seriously limit this breeding under greenhouse or insectary conditions, especially if the turnover of host plants in the aphid breeding rooms is not rapid. The problem is even more acute where an attempt is made to propagate and maintain separate, pure cultures of parasites in the same building.
