Azalea plant bug (Rhinocapsus vanduzeei Uhler) Þfth instars and a commercially obtained green lacewing (Chrysoperla rufilabris Burmeister) Þrst and second instars exhibited a type II functional response when caged with varying densities of fourth or Þfth instar azalea lace bug, Stephanitis pyrioides (Scott), prey. Attack coefÞcients for combined fourth and Þfth instar prey were statistically similar for R. vanduzeei and C. rufilabris (0.052 and 0.057, respectively). The handling time was signi… CONTINUE READING
