Thermal requirements, development and survival of the immature stages of the Alphitobius diaperinus Panz Coleoptera Tenebrionidae Exigencias termicas, periodo de desenvolvimento e sobrevivencia de imaturos de Alphitobius diaperinus Panzer Coleoptera Tenebrionidae



Neotropical Entomology 30(3): 365-368



The development and survival of the immature stages of the lesser mealworm Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) were studied at four constant temperatures (22deg. C, 25deg. C, 28deg. C, and 31deg. C). The development was completed at all temperatures. At 22deg. C, longer development period and lower survival were observed. The optimal temperature was 31deg. C which promoted shorter development and higher survival. The basal temperature and thermal constant for egg, larva and pupa development were: 17.8deg. C, 19.2deg. C, and 16.5deg. C and 40.09, 239.48 and 59.56 degree-days, respectively.
