Prosapia bicincta (Say) nymphs can be reared on pearl millet grown in vermiculite. A 16-h photo phase prevents diapause. Adults are sustained in oviposition cages via leaf bouquets. Leaves of millet and several other plant species are suitable for these bouquets. Eggs are deposited in moist Cellucotton® oviposition sites. They are separated from the Cellucotton by pulping it in water and then bubbling air through the pulp in a separatory funnel. The eggs settle to bottom of the funnel where they can be removed by draining.
