Abstract:

A cyclone separator can be used to transfer live insects from one cage to another without passing the insect through an impeller or fan housing. The insects are transported in an air stream, and they can be transferred into either airtight or screened containers. Multiple passages through the machine had no significant effect upon the longevity, mating, fertility or pheromone response of the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hübner). Mortality of Voria ruralis Fallen, transferred through the machine, was no different than mortality in a control group.
