  • Both theoretical and empirical evidence indicate that in systems where insect predators have longer developmental times than their prey the predators have little impact on the abundance of their prey. In assessing the 'effectiveness' of a predator for biological control one should take into account that selection maximizes predator fitness, not its effectiveness as a biocontrol agent. Therefore, predators that have a long developmental time relative to their prey are unlikely to be the best… CONTINUE READING
