Relationship of temperature and prey type to developmental time of the bark beetle predator Thanasimus dubius (Coleoptera: Cleridae)



Relationship of temperature and prey type to developmental time of the bark beetle predator Thanasimus dubius (Coleoptera: Cleridae)



Canadian Entomologist 1122: 179-184



The effects of 3 temperatures and 3 prey types on the developmental time (from egg to adult) of Thanasimus dubius (F.) from 2 geographical areas were investigated in the laboratory. The 3 temperature regimens were: 12.5 deg C for 12 h followed by 17.5 deg C for 12 h, 18.5 deg C for 12 h followed by 23.5 deg C for 12 h, and 27 deg C for 24 h.
