Female Oviposition Techniques > Potted Plant Sleeves

Another option of obtaining eggs out of live females is placing nylon net sleeves,paint strainers, and/or cylindrical screens right over potted plants. This self-contained setup not only allows you to get eggs out of females; but also allows you to continue to rear the immatures without necessarily worrying about finding and hatching the eggs and/or rearing them in a separate setup. All you need to do is water the plant and expose to suitable light.
