Contribution to the study of the influence of alimentation on the development and reproduction of Orius niger Wolff, 1811 (Heteroptera: Anthocoridae)


English Abstract

Orius niger was reared in growth chambers, and a new system of growth chamber is described. Various foods were tested: eggs of Ephestia kuehniella (= Anagasta kuehniella), adult Thrips tabaci, and pollen from 5 species of plants. Development time from egg to adult, number of consumed preys, food efficiency (from dry weight), egg production and longevity were studied for each diet. The best diet was eggs of Ephestia kuehniella plus pollen.
