Abstract
Laboratory breeding of Sphodramantis for large-scale release in Giant-Looper-infested coffee may present some difficulties. Their cannibalistic habit would necessitate arrangements for individual breeding which is expensive. However, once the method is perfected the cost of breeding may be more economical than the cost of insecticides regularly used to control the Giant Looper.
