Effect of various food substances on longevity and fecundity of some lady bird beetles



Indian Journal of Entomologyubl 39(2): 190-192



The results are presented of studies in India on the length of time for which larvae in each of the 4 instars and the adults of the predatory coccinellids Menochilus sexmaculatus (F.), Micraspis discolor (F.) (Verania discolor) and Coccinella repanda Thnb. could survive if provided with water only, a 10% sugar solution or (in the case of the adults only) rice pollen and nectar, or were kept without food or water.
