Caterpillar Rearing Master Data Sheet
Data keeping:
It is extremely important that you keep track on a daily basis of all the statistics about the batches that you are rearing. We maintain an account of hatched versus unhatched ova, total number of caterpillars, any incidents of mortality or parasitism, or pupation events. We have developed an Excel spreadsheet to help us keep track of our batches. We keep the same spreadsheet for every rearing project and file them on our hard drive in folders organized by species. This allows us to quickly refer to previous rearing efforts in the event that we have questions about current projects. You may use these to track your own rearing efforts. we would appreciate if you would share your completed sheets with us as we build histories of rearing efforts.
