How can one keep pupas of Cerambycid for travelling (outside their chambers ....) the excat problem is, having found pupas of Cerambycid, how to keep it safely for travelling by plane (Cabin passenger)and bring it back to Europe (from Tropics). I never had the case (except a big larva of Tithoes) and don't know how to do. Of course impossible to take the tree trunk or Something like that thanks Thierry
s'il n'y pas de solution c'est qu'il n'y a pas de problème ! akuna matata ....
The main problem is to ensure an appropriate humidity. I reared several Cerambycidae and Buprestidae from pupae found in nature in glass vials with tight cotton corks which I moistened sometimes. If one let it too long dry, elytra can be deformed in an adult.
A friend of mine put each pupa in platic tube with coton at extremity. Like that, it travels savely by plane (but not in cabin passenger, because it should not be allowed). He does the same with branch, part of trunc, etc.
