Bionomics of Coccinella septempunctata Linn. (Coccinellidae: Coleoptera) - a potential predator of mustard aphid



Bionomics of Coccinella septempunctata Linn. (Coccinellidae: Coleoptera) - a potential predator of mustard aphid



Annals of Agricultural Research 26(3): 453-457



A laboratory study on the bionomics of C. septempunctata indicated that the eggs hatched in 3 days, with 86.6% hatchability. The pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition periods were 6.7, 13.4 and 3.3 days, respectively. Female laid ~657.7 eggs during her life span. The grub passed through 4 instars with an average duration of 9.27 days. The average pupal period was 6.52 days.
