Abstract/Contents:Nine media were tested on third instar larvae for use in the laboratory rearing of Phyllophaga crinita (Coleoptera: Scarabaeide). Thatch, Kellogg's Concentrate (TM) cereal, and grass roots plus culm nodes yielded greater growth rates than did Post Grape Nuts (TM) cereal, although the latter produced good survival rates. Two graphs showing the growth rates are included.
