The current study examines the effect of photoperiod (16:08 or 12:12 h L:D) and diet (eggs of Ephestia kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Phycitidae) or the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum (Harris) (Hemiptera: Aphididae)) on the development and reproduction of the multicoloured Asian lady beetle Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). A long-term laboratory population of H. axyridis (since 1998) and a melanic and non-melanic population originating from field collected individuals of… Expand

On the effects of diet and photoperiod on Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae) larval development
TLDR
Results suggest that in the case studied, diet does not play the role of cue factor, but directly influences the larval growth and development of H. axyridis. Expand
Role of photoperiod in the development and reproduction of Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that adult H. axyridis may encounter problems in preying and reproducing in the winter conditions of unheated and unilluminated greenhouses in areas with temperatures lower than 20°C and day lengths shorter than 12 h. Expand
Weak photoperiodic response facilitates the biological invasion of the harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Instead of a rapid micro‐evolutionary adaptation of the critical day length to a new climate, the invasive populations of the harlequin ladybird decrease their dependence onPhotoperiod and thus the weak photoperiodic response of SE Asian population of H. axyridis can be considered as a pre‐adaptation further developed during the invasion. Expand
Effects of photoperiod and diet on diapause tendency, maturation and fecundity in Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that cue effect of diet (reproductive activation) can be achieved almost independently of the number of prey consumed, while nutritional effects (the rate of reproductive maturation and fecundity) are sensitive both to the quality and quantity of food. Expand
Photoperiodic control of development and reproduction in Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The rate of reproductive maturation of adult females of the multicolored Asian lady beetle was twice as high under long day conditions, with the threshold between 14L : 10D and 12L : 12D, although even under short day conditions ca 10% of the females show a tendency to mature more quickly. Expand
Interspecific variation in photoperiodic effect on the rate of preimaginal development in Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Comparison of the parameters of photoperiodic responses showed that although the photoperperiodic effect on reproductive maturation in individuals from Sochi and Pardubice invasive populations was relatively weak, the effect of day length on the rate of their preimaginal development was even somewhat stronger than that of individuals from Irkutsk and Daegu native populations. Expand
Effects of Photoperiod on Boll Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) Development, Survival, and Reproduction
TLDR
Knowledge of the photoperiod-dependent population growth potential is critical for understanding population dynamics to better develop sampling protocols and timing insecticide applications. Expand
The influence of density-dependent factors on larval development in native and invasive populations of Harmonia axyridis (Pall.) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Data suggest that the influence of density-dependent factors on the development of H. axyridis depends significantly on larval prey species, and that larvae from the invasive population have somewhat more aggressive interactions with competitors, this possibly having been one of the prerequisites for invasion. Expand
Effect of different diets on biology, reproductive variables and life and fertility tables of Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Under the conditions used in the experiments, H. axyridis was able to survive, develop and reproduce normally, demonstrating that are different kind of food that can be essential for supporting the reproduction of some species of Coccinellidae, but not with the same optimization of preferred prey. Expand
The influence of temperature, photoperiod, and diet on development and reproduction in the four-spot lady beetle Harmonia quadripunctata (Pontoppidan) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Relatively small body size, low fecundity, and a strong photoperiodic response that hinders rapid adaptation to novel climates probably explain the fact that H. quadripunctata, in contrast to H. axyridis, has not become an aggressive invader. Expand

Pollen as an alternative food for Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
The exploitation of pollen and other plant foods at times when insect prey is scarce, may offer a further competitive advantage to the non-indigenous coccinellid H. axyridis over native European predatory lady beetles that share the same niche and are less capable of using pollen as an alternative food. Expand
Development and reproduction of Adalia bipunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) on eggs of Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Phycitidae) and pollen.
TLDR
Findings indicate that A. bipunctata is able to compensate for a suboptimal diet of animal prey by supplementary feeding on flower pollen, and concludes that pollinivory may be a crucial trait for both the rearing of this natural enemy and its use in biological control programmes. Expand
Effects of different photoperiods and wavelengths of light on the life‐history traits of an aphidophagous ladybird, Coelophora saucia (Mulsant)
TLDR
Females kept at long‐day photoperiod and under white light showed better reproductive performance than those placed under other photoperperiods and wavelengths. Expand
Induction of reproductive diapause in Hippodamia convergens (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) hinges on prey quality and availability
TLDR
It is concluded that reproductive diapause is an important adaptation for improving H. convergens survival during summer when aphids are scarce, although females will forgo diappause if they have con- tinuous access to high quality prey. Expand
Effect of Temperature and Intraspecific Allometry on Predation by Two Phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Temperature is a limiting factor to larval and adult relative consumption rate and predation activity of fourth instars and adults of aulica and nigra phenotypes were compared, and body size and shape could explain the differences observed. Expand
Nutritional plasticity of the predatory ladybeetle Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): comparison between natural and substitution prey.
TLDR
The composition of the coccinellids feeding either on E. kuehniella eggs or on aphids was compared for amino acid, fatty acid and glycogen contents, revealing a good capability of H. axyridis to develop on foods that are very different in their biochemical composition. Expand
Influence of prey quality on the fitness of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis adults
TLDR
Differences in the suitability of A. fabae and M. persicae for the two phenotypes of the predator suggests that either differences occur in the nutritive requirements of the predators, or in the nutritious value of the two prey species. Expand
Phytophagous preferences of the multicolored Asian lady beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) for autumn-ripening fruit.
TLDR
In autumn, it seems that H. axyridis is an opportunist, taking advantage of previously damaged fruit, caused by other agents, and shows a preference for damaged fruits over undamaged fruits. Expand
Fitness of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that a genotype that confers a specific pattern of elytra could also confer other specific autecological attributes, such as longevity and reproductive capacity, that could affect its fitness. Expand
Invasion history, habitat preferences and phenology of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis in Belgium
TLDR
The potential of H. axyridis to disrupt native ladybird assemblages in Belgium is discussed Based on recorded distribution, ecology and phenology, the potential to affect native species is higher for generalist, deciduous and coniferous tree ladybird species than for heathland and wetland specialist species.
