dc.description.abstractPurpose: Waterhyacinth biological control research at the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Vicksburg, Mississippi is currently focused on the rearing and release of the delphacid planthopper, Megamelus scutellaris Berg (Hemiptera: Delphacidae), which has been in culture at the ERDC since 2010. Past failures to establish M. scutellaris were attributed to extreme summer temperatures at field sites; therefore, a putatively temperature-tolerant strain of this insect was obtained from field-established stock in Florida. This report details the performance of original and new strains of M. scutellaris in greenhouse rearing and field released colonies in 2015.en_US
