Abstract

Insect rearing and its management is a prerequisite in developing IPM packages for various food crops. Insects reared for the development of these packages should be regularly monitored for quality in order to ensure success. This paper describes various methods of rearing followed at the ICIPE in the process of IPM development. The rearing of Chilo partellus is described as an example of large-scale rearing. Steps in the experimental rearing of Busseola fusca are outlined. The rearing of an egg parasitoid, Trichogramma mwanzai is described as a vital technology in the IPM of maize and sorghum. The value of quality control is emphasized using the rearing of the phytoseiid mite, Neoseiulus teke as an example.

L'élévage des insectes et leur gestion sont importants dans le processus du développement de la gestion intégré pour les différentes plantes. Les insectes élevés pour ce but doivent être suivit pour leur qualité afin d'assuré un succès. Cette publication rappôte les différentes méthodes utilisés pour l'élévage des insectes a l'ICIPE dans le processus de développer une gestion intégré. L'élévage du Chilo partellus est décrit comme example d'un élévage à grande échelie. Demarches pour l'élévage experimental du Busseola fusca sont décrites. L'élévage d'un parasitoïde des oeufs, Trichogramma mwanzai est décrit comme une technologie importance dans la gestion intégrée des ravageurs du maï's et du sorgho. La valeur du contrôle de la qualité a été aussi décrite en utilisant le Neoseiulus teke comme example.
