DescriptionLack of suitable rearing and handling techniques has hampered research on the biology and control of many species of cerambycids that feed on host species of economic importance. Furthermore, because cerambycids spend most or all of their pre-adult life cycle inside the host plant, the biology of many is not well-known and would be difcult to study in nature. This is especially true for species with extended life cycles where adults only appear briey in the eld either annually, biannually, or less often. The development of laboratory rearing methods, either partially or completely independent of host material, can and has been used to rapidly advance our knowledge of cerambycids.
