  • The green lacewing, Mallada astur (Banks) was reared on frozen grubs of red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum Herbst. The incubation period, larval period and pupal period were 3.0-3.3 days, 8.70-9.30 days and 9.10-10.40 days, respectively and total life cycle was completed in 20.8-22.7 days and continuous rearing for 5 generations did not alter any biological parameter significantly. The total immature mortality was 21 per cent and larval survival 76.66 per cent, when fed on a-week-old frozen… CONTINUE READING
