[Syrphidae] Breeding syrphids
Wed, 11 Jul 2001 14:48:12 +0300
I would like to recommend to teachers that hoverflies
should be included in their curriculum and that they can breed them in the
classroom. Francis gilbert has already suggested, probably wisely that
getting adults to amte in a cage may be tricky.
Has anyone bred through Episyrphus balteatus which I expect can be raised in
captivity on a diet of
aphids as larvae, and honey solution and pollen for the adults.
Or any other suggestions, I am partially ears. Well eyes anyway.
Yours in Friendship
May Peace and Love Be With You Always
