Jan Dietrick demonstrates how to check the larvae by tapping the unit above white paper. Each unit is filled 115% to ensure each of the 500 cells will have a larva. ?Our standard is to overfill the units,? Dietrick explains. ?You have to tap the back really hard, because the little larvae may hold onto the inside of the cells.? This same method is used for in-field release of the larvae on infested foliage. (Photo by Bryce Yukio Adolphson, © 2008).
