Abstract

Hand-drawn fine-tipped glass needles have been used in this laboratory for several years to inject virus preparations into small insects such as leafhoppers and aphids. A certain amount of skill is involved in making these needles, and, in the hands of the inexperienced worker, the number of acceptable units per work period is sometimes discouragingly small.
