Association of soldier beetle (Coleoptera: Cantharidae) population decline with red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)



Association of soldier beetle (Coleoptera: Cantharidae) population decline with red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)



Journal of Entomological Science 38(4): 706-710



Surveys were conducted in different counties in Georgia and in South Carolina, USA, on September 2001 and 2002 to determine the effect of the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta; RIFA) abundance on the number of common soldier beetle (Chauliognathus pennsylvanicus; SB). In 2001, twenty-seven sites were surveyed, and RIFAs and SBs were detected at 15 and 12 sites, respectively. Four sites recorded both species.
