Of the biotic factors potentially affecting the foraging behavior of pit-building antlion larvae,Myrmeleon bore Tjeder, we focussed on the density effects and examined experimentally influences of larval density on pit construction behavior, spatial distribution and pit relocation rate. Moreover the mechanism of mutual interference among larvae was examined. 1. After releasing 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 third instar larvae ofM. bore at the center of each container (30×30×10 cm3) filled with sand… CONTINUE READING
