Various foods were tested: eggs of <em>Ephestia kuehniella</em> (= <em>Anagasta kuehniella</em>), adult <em>Thrips tabaci,</em> 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 <em>Ephestia kuehniella</em> plus pollen.</p> <p>Author : Jean-Lou Justine</p> <p>Document : Rapport de DEA, University of Montpellier, France</p> <p>Date : 11 July 1978</p> <p> </p> <p>Note by author: This is a beginner's work.</p>
