Abstract:Eggs of Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) are oviposited in mass. This phenomenon reduces their utility for research purposes and renders them incompatible for use in most mass rearing systems. A method is described here wherein a wax-impregnated oviposition substrate, in combination with physical pressure and a directed stream of water, is used to separate single eggs from masses.
