Stethorus pauperculus (Weise) and S. siphonulus Kapur are common coccinellid predators feeding upon spider mites in Thailand. The life cycles and life tables of S. pauperculus and S. siphonulus were performed under laboratory conditions at 27-28°C, 70-75%RH and 12:12 L:D regimes using Tetranychus urticae Koch as prey. S. pauperculus and S. siphonulus required 14.05 and 11.25 days to complete their development. The highest mortality rate of both Stethorus beetles occurred in the first larval… Expand
