The feeding potential of mite destroyer ladybird beetle, Stethorus pauperculus (Weise) were recorded on two mite species viz., Oligonychus indicus and Tetranychus urticae under the laboratory conditions during September-December 2013. For complete life cycle the predator S. pauperculus required 548.57±11.00 eggs or 38.20±6.60 larva or 275±6.46 nymphs or 150.07±6.88 adults of O. indicus , whereas in case of T. urticae it required 544.20±8.28 eggs, or 324.97±6.46 larvae or 249.07±7.65 nymphs or… Expand
