Brassica nigra plants, characterized by high levels of sinigrin, and artificial aphid diets to which sinigrin was selectively added were used to rear the crucifer specialist, Brevicoryne brassicae. Aphids were provided as a food source to two species of polyphagous ladybird, Adalia bipunctata and Coccinella septempunctata. First instar A. bipunctata were unable to survive when fed with B. brassicae reared on B. nigra or diets containing 0.2% sinigrin, but when fed with aphids reared on diets… CONTINUE READING
