The effects of an organophosphorous insecticide, methamidophos, on the pest control potential of the spider Hylyphantes graminicola (Sundevall) (Araneae: Linyphiidae) were investigated in the laboratory with the fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster Meigen). The influence of methamidophos on predation by H. graminicola was very obvious in female spiders, which preyed on fewer prey in the 8 h after exposure to the insecticide but subsequently recovered. On the other hand, the predation rates in… CONTINUE READING
