A METHOD FOR REARING NYSIUS ERICAE (HEMIPTERA: LYGAEIDAE), THE FALSE CHINCH BUG1

  • L. Burgess (a1) and H.H. Weegar (a1)

Abstract

The false chinch bug, Nysius ericae (Schilling), was reared successfully in clear polystyrene containers in the laboratory. Nymphs were fed hulled sunflower seeds and radish slices; adults were fed hulled sunflower seeds and seedlings of Brassica juncea mustard or B. napus canola. Eggs were laid in rolls of compacted cotton, stored at 5 ± 1°C, and brought out to room temperature for hatching.

La fausse punaise fétide, Nysius ericae (Schilling) a été élevée avec succès au laboratoire en contenants de polystyrène transparent. Les nymphes ont reçu une alimentation de graines de tournesol décortiquées et de radis tranché; les adultes avaient un régime de graines de tournesol décortiquées et de jeunes plants de moutarde Brassica juncea ou de colza canola B. napus. Les oeufs ont été placés dans des rouleaux de coton pressé, gardés à la température de 5 ± 1°C, et ramenés à la température d’ambiance pour l’éclosion.
