Abstract/Contents:"Laboratory procedures were developed for rearing the hairy chinch bug Blissus leucopterus hirtus Montandon, on corn sections in 236.6 ml cardboard cartons. There was significantly higher survival of nymphs and adults when eggs were surface sterilized in 2% sodium hypochlorite solution as compared to those treated with a 1% solution or untreated eggs. Adult survival was significantly higher (P<0.05) when chinch bugs were reared on corn sections treated with 2% sodium hypochlorite than when either treated with 2% thiram or untreated. Developmental times for nymphal instars were determined as follows: 1st 12.3±6.0; 2nd 5.4±2.7; 3rd 5.2±1.7; 4th 4.9±1.3; 5th 7.1±0.9; total 35.5±7.4 days. The preoviposition period was determined to be 10.8±4.4 days with nearly 80% of the females tested ovipositing within 24 days."
