Abstract:The diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.), is an important global pest of crucifers. The resistance of this species to insecticides is a major obstacle to its effective management. P. xylostella has become an important study species in different areas of research, including insecticide resistance. Developing methods for the mass-rearing of P. xylsotella in the laboratory is therefore essential to facilitate such research. Current techniques for the laboratory mass-rearing of P. xylsotella are nonstandard and unscientific. This paper focuses on introducing the technical specifications of a standardized technique for the mass-rearing of this species in the laboratory that is both simple and practical. This method of mass-rearing P. xylsotella deserves to be promoted nationally.
