[Syrphidae] Question about mating E. balteatus

I understand that E. balteatus is relatively easily reared in captivity. If individuals are captured in the field and then placed in captivity will they mate and oviposit readily or does it require a number of generations in captivity for this to occur regularly and predicatably?

Any feedback gratefully received.
