ABSTRACT
Experiments were conducted under laboratory conditions to find out the most efficient method for harvesting the eggs of Chrysoperla carnea from the different substrates provided on the top of the adult rearing cage for egg laying purpose. Highest egg viability (82.89%) was found in the eggs removed by a razor from the granulated Maraco paper sheet used by AM-Tech rearing methodology whereas egg viability was lowest (64.89%) in the case of egg removed from black organdy with potassium hypochlorite solution. Modest egg viability (75.56%) was observed in the eggs laid on black organdy and removed by a razor.
