Seasonal dynamics of ecophysiological parameters are described which are relevant to overwintering in field-collected adults of a Czech population of the red firebug, Pyrrhocoris apterus. Five life-cycle phases were distinguished using the duration of pre-oviposition period as a criterion: reproductive activity (spring-early summer), intensification of reproductive diapause (RD) (peak of summer), maintenance of RD (late summer-early autumn), termination of RD (late autumn-early winter), and low… CONTINUE READING
