A Method for Rearing Stenotus rubrovittatus (Matsumura) (Heteroptera: Miridae) by Using the Spikelets of Gramineous Weeds as Oviposition Sites and Wheat Seedlings for Rearing Nymphs

The sorghum plant bug, Stenotus rubrovittatus, was reared using wheat seedlings and the spikelets of gramineous weeds. When the spikelets of Poa annua, Digitaria ciliaris, or Eleusine indica were provided as oviposition sites for 10 pairs of S. rubrovittatus along with wheat seedlings as food for 48 h, the average number of nymphs emerging from the spikelets was 88.4, 108.5 and 79.3, respectively; however, only 23.6 nymphs emerged on average when only wheat seedlings were provided.
