1. Spiders form a major component of the generalist predator fauna, potentially able to restrict pest population growth, but their populations may be food-limited under current farming regimes. This study aimed to quantify food availability to spiders in winter wheat and to determine whether spider web locations are positively associated with available food resources. 2. Mini-sticky traps (availability rate per 24 h, including prey falling from the crop) and mini-quadrats (instantaneous density… CONTINUE READING
