  1. The Basics of Quality Control for Insect Rearing2013 Norm Leppla University of Florida Department of Entomology and Nematology

  2. I. Introduction Norm’s Career in Insect Rearing • University of Arizona- Insect rearing research, 2 years • USDA, ARS- Insectary management, Florida and Texas, 17 years • USDA, APHIS- Methods development, Washington DC and international, 7 years • University of Florida- Integrated pest management and Biological Control, 16 years • Chemical ecology and quality of Spalangiacameroni (Erika Machtinger) • Rearing and quality of Tamarixiaradiata (Chris Kerr)

  3. Countries of Workshop Students

  4. Quality Control Topics • Introduction- Learning how to rear quality insects • Colony Establishment and Maintenance • Monitoring Quality • Evaluation and Management • Guidelines for Quality Systems • Total Quality Management

  5. Learning How to Rear High Quality Insects • Apprentice in an insectary • Network with other professionals • Literature plus trial-and-error • Visit other insectaries • Reviews by experts • Education and Training programs

  6. MSU Insect Rearing Workshop Frank Davis John Schneider

  7. Online Rearing Courses- 2013 • An Introduction to Insect Rearing • Physical Aspects of Insect Rearing • Biological Aspects of Insect Rearing • Following Insectary SOPs: How and Why? 2004 http://insectdiets.com/

  8. Insectary Manager Network Anyone associated with the mass rearing of insects 65 Members http://www.entsoc.org/

  9. Insect Rearing Professionals Google Group Subscribe: (leonwesterd@gmail.com) Léon Westerd Group moderator Head of insect rearing Wageningen UR, Netherlands

  10. VI. Total Quality Management

  11. Parts of an Insect Rearing System

  12. Generic Guidelines for Quality Systems • Policy, Planning and Administration • Design Assurance and Change Control • Control of Purchased Materials • Production Quality Control • User Contact and Field Performance • Corrective Action • Employees- Select, Train and Motivate

  13. A Complete QA System

  14. II. Colony Establishment and Maintenance II. A. Purposes for Rearing InsectsII. B. Types of Insect Rearing SystemsII. C. Options for Colonizing InsectsII. D. Maintaining the Quality of Colonized Insects

  15. II. A. Purposes for Rearing Insects

  16. White witch, Thysaniaagrippina(Lepidoptera: Noctuidae

  17. II. B. Types of Insect Rearing Systems Small-Scale Rearing: Butterflies Painted Lady Monarch

  18. “Insect rearing is never a boring task; insects are always doing something interesting and pose new challenges all the time” Annie Lorie Punky Rogers Medium-Scale Rearing

  19. Mass Rearing- Medfly El Pino, Guatemala Capacity- 3.5 billion sterile male pupae per week Metapa, Mexico

  20. Honolulu, Hawaii Nori Tanaka

  21. II. C. Options for Colonizing Insects Peter Ebling Insect Producer Database Mgr. Great Lakes Forestry Centre 1219 Queen St. East Sault Ste. Marie, ON P6A 2E5 peter.ebling@nrcan.gc.ca (705) 541-5517

  22. World-wide listing, 35 insect & 21 nematode orders • Data submitted by sources • Searchable database • Expand clients • Adopt-a-colony http://www.insect.glfc.cfs.nrcan.gc.ca

  23. Field Collecting Cabbage Loopers

  24. Continuous Improvement of Insect Rearing Capability

  25. II. D. Maintaining the Quality of Colonized Insects

  26. Maintaining the Quality of Colonized Insects • Collection of appropriate biotypes • Colonization and strain development • Rearing proficiency • Colony management • Optimization • Strain replacement

  27. III. Monitoring Quality III. A. Quality Control Criteria and Standardized Tests III. B. Sampling for Consistent Quality III. C. Production, Process and Product Control

  28. III. A. Quality Control Criteria and Standardized Tests • Quantity- Number of Pupae or Adults • Size- Weight of Pupae • Fecundity- Oviposition and Egg Hatch • Rate of Development-Synchronization • Adult Behavior-Flight, Longevity • Field Performance- Achieve Purpose

  29. Specifications- Requirements for a product or service Standards- The level of quality at which a specification is written

  30. III. B. Sampling for Consistent Quality Count = Measurement = N Mean = Sum/Number of Counts = X Variance = Sum of (N – X)2 / n-1 = 2 Standard Deviation = Square Root of 2 = SD

  31. Number of Cabbage Looper Pupae Per Rearing Container Shelf 1 is lowest

  32. Quality Control Charts

  33. III. C. Production, Process and Product Control

  34. IV. Evaluation and Management IV. A. Structured Diagnostic Procedures IV. B. Quality Control versus Methods Improvement IV. C. Periodic Review

  35. IV. A. Structured Diagnostic Procedures

  36. IV. B. Quality Control Versus Methods Improvement Quality Control • Monitor indicator variables • Evaluate multiple variables • Troubleshoot using QC data • Conduct evaluations rapidly • Goal is to restore stable production Methods Improvement • Conduct evaluations methodically • Test one variable at a time • Use controlled experiments • Test results in the production system • Goal is to optimize production

  37. Olivefly Methods Improvement Bactrocera oleae FAO/IAEA Entomology Unit Seibersdorf, Austria - 2009

  38. Eggs hatched Eggs laid Eggs/Cage Sex ratio male:female

  39. Eggs laid Eggs Hatched Total eggs laid Number of females

  40. Eggs laid Eggs hatched Total eggs laid Number of males
