Ground beetles are considered beneficial arthropods in agriculture, because they are natural enemies of cereal pests (Luff 1987, Kröber & Carl 1991) and because they represent a food source for species at other trophic levels. Being normally abundant, and not dependent on only one prey species, they may provide a good buffer against pests as their populations may be more stable than those of aphid-specific predators (Helenius 1990). Pesticides used in cereal fields are targeted against specific… CONTINUE READING
