The suitability of Tenebrio molitor Linn. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and Corcyra cephalonica Stainton (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) larvae as food sources for the general insect predator, Sycanus dichotomus Stal. (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) was evaluated by examining the effects of different prey consumption on the predator’s growth parameters and longevity. The growth parameters assessed in this study were developmental period, body weight and femur length. Compared to single prey species, a…

Laboratory rearing of Sycanus annulicornis (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) on two species of prey: Differences in its biology and efficiency as a predator of the nettle caterpillar pest Setothosea asigna (Lepidoptera: Limacodidae)
TLDR
Evaluating the influence of different prey on the biology and the ability of S. annulicornis to attack and kill the nettle caterpillar pest S. asigna indicates that the larvae of T. molitor are a more effective diet for rearing S.Asigna.
ASSESSMENT ON VORACITY AND PREDATION BY PREDATOR, Sycanus dichotomus STAL. (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) TO OIL PALM BAGWORM, Pteroma pendula
TLDR
The differences in predation potential indicated that the adult males and females were more vigorous and voracious in capturing and killing prey compared to the fifth instar nymphs, indicating the potential of the adults’ stage of S. dichotomus to be released in the field, aiming for greater bagworm reduction in subsequent generation.
THE PERFORMANCE OF PREDATORY INSECT, Sycanus dichotomus STAL. (HEMIPTERA: REDUVIIDAE) ON COMBINATION OF PLANT HOST AND PREY
TLDR
It is recommended that future research is necessary to assess the quality of the environment and habitat to give a more positive effect to predatory insect development.

INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT DIETS OF CORCYRA CEPHALONICA ON LIFE HISTORY OF A REDUVIID PREDATOR RHYNOCORIS MARGINATUS (FAB.)
TLDR
Life table studies indicated that the net reproductive rate, mean length of a generation and corrected generation time were maximum in the above mentioned category and developmental period and the adult longevity were minimum and maximum respectively when R. marginatus reared on C. cephalonica fed predators respectively.
Characteristic Morphology and Biology of Sycanus aurantiacus Ishikawa et Okajima, sp. nov. (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) on the Larvae of Tenebrio molitor L. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
The study on the Characteristic Morphology and Biology of Sycanus aurantiacus on Tenebrio molitor larvae was conducted in the Integrated Pest Management Laboratory, Program Study of Agroecotechnology, Udayana University, Bali, Indonesia and revealed that the egg incubation period of S. aurantiationus was 12-14 days.
Development and reproduction of a predatory stinkbug, Podisus nigrispinus in relation to two different prey types and environmental conditions
TLDR
The results suggest that the predatory stinkbug Podisus nigrispinus can adjust its performance according to the type of prey available, independently from environmentalvariations, enabling it to maintain a presence in the tomato ecosystem until a primary pest species arrives.
Ten aphid species (Sternorrhyncha: Aphididae) as prey for Adalia bipunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
Ten aphid species wcre used as prey for Adalia bipunctata and six of them (Euceraphis betulae, Cavariella konoi, Liosomaphis berberidis, Acyrthosiphon ignotum, Aphis farinosa and Macrosiphoniella
Development and reproduction of the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii on artificial diets
TLDR
The findings indicate the potential of artificial diets for the mass production of this economically important predatory mite and supported development and reproduction of A. swirskii to the same extent as a factitious prey which is routinely used in the mass rearing of the phytoseiid.
The effects of thirteen species of aphids on some life history parameters of the ladybird Coccinella septempunctata
TLDR
The prediction of impact of C. septempunctata in an aphid infested crop dependson the food specificity of the predator and foreffective mass rearing of the studiedcoccinellid species is needed.
Nutritional value of brine shrimp cysts as a factitious food for Orius laevigatus (Heteroptera: Anthocoridae)
TLDR
Brine shrimp cysts may be used as a supplement in the mass production of O. laevigatus but may not be a suitable food for long-term culturing of the predator.
Biological Studies of a Predator, Sycanus Indagator II. Field Survival and Predation Potential
TLDR
Studies of Pseudoplusia includens (Walker) larvae as prey and an imported predator, Sycanus indagator (Stal) were made in field cages over soybean plants to suggest success of this predator in Florida cabbage or soybean fields.
