A description is given of a versatile, inexpensive method for rearing different types of terrestrial Heteroptera. It permits individual, group- or massrearing and is suitable for continuous rearing as well as for food-preference experiments. It seems to fulfil all the essential requirements of the insects regarding feeding, drinking, moulting, mating, and oviposition. Some experiences are given espeeially from rearing seed-feeding Lygaeidae. Especially important is that the animals are given shelter during critical phases of development notably during moulting. Substrate and shelter also seem to be of great importance for evoking the behaviour necessary for a successful mating and oviposition. The method is discussed and compared with some other rearing techniques.
