Eggs of the Bronze Bug needed to rear biocontrol agent
Please let me know if you are aware of any sites that currently have a very high population of the bronze bug, Thaumastocoris peregrinus. We need to obtain large numbers of this insect (adults) for the rearing of the biological control agent, Cleruchoides noackae, in preparation of its release.
Your assistance with this will be greatly appreciated.
