Biology of Antestia bug Antestiopsis intricata (Ghesquieme & Carayon) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) on Coffea arabica L

Biology of Antestia bug Antestiopsis intricata (Ghesquieme & Carayon) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) on Coffea arabica L

Journal of Coffee Research 32(1/2): 30-39

The biology of Antestia bug, Antestiopsis intricata (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), was studied on coffee berries (Coffea arabica) at 27+or-0.4 degrees C and 60+or-0.5% relative humidity under laboratory conditions in Jimma, Ethiopia. Test insects were kept in a cage provided with fresh coffee twigs bearing large green berries. The results showed that oviposition of A. intricata started 12 days after female emergence.
