Abstract:A method is described for separating the eggs, larvae, and pupae of a mushroom pest, Lycoriella mali (Fitch), from mushroom-growing media. The infested material in water is poured onto a l6-mesh sieve screen inserted into a l40-mesh sieve. The material caught in the l40-mesh sieve is shaken in 60% sucrose solution. Then the supernatant is poured through a 140-mesh screen and the residue is centrifuged in a 40% sucrose solution. The supernatant contains little except the immature stages of L. mali.
