Abstract:Surface treatment of the eggs with 0.5% sodium hypochlorite and use of a modified Manduca sexta (L.) larval diet which does not contain mustard oil glucoside feeding stimulant enabled repeatable, disease-free, efficient culture of Pierls rapae (L.). P. rapae butterflies fed spontaneously on 30% honey solution in artificial flowersand oviposited on cabbage plants in an outdoor greenhouse.
