In experiments where grain is to be infested with a specific number of larvae of the Angoumois grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella(Olivier), eggs must be collected and hatched. Female Angoumois grain moths deposit their eggs in cracks and crevices in the grain. This habit may be used to advantage in collecting eggs by offering strips of paper with seams where the moths can place their eggs.
