  • Predation is often a key factor maintaining insect populations below pest status in annual crops. However, in many cases, the predators causing significant mortality to particular pests in the field are not well understood. In particular, the complex of nocturnally active predators feeding on pest species is usually unknown. The predator complexes attacking lepidopteran eggs in cotton, corn and soybean in south Texas, U.S.A., were determined with the goal of characterizing diurnal and nocturnal… CONTINUE READING
