Abstract: This study provides the first contribution of the biology and life table of Aphis forbesi Weed, 1889 (Hemiptera: Aphididae), an important strawberry pest throughout the world. This species lives in the crown and leaf petioles of the plant. It is difficulty to rear this species in laboratory due to protocooperation with ants observed only in the field. We studied the life cycle of A. forbesi on the leaves of the Albion strawberry cultivar at 25 ± 2 °C, 60 ± 10% relative humidity, and a 12-h photophase. The expe… Show more

“…This tritrophic interaction among plants => sap-sucking insects => trophobiont-tending ants is one of the most critical interactions found in nature (Stadler and Dixon 2005;Araujo et al 2016). The presence of trophobiont-tending ants on P. regnellii trees is likely due to a mutualistic relationship with phytophagous insects such as Hemiptera (Stadler and Dixon 2005;Araujo et al 2016). Beyond the ecological importance, ants are also used as bioindicators of ecological restoration of degraded areas Revista Colombiana de Entomología 2021, 47 (1): e8943 • Gezilene Fernandes De Souza et al…”

“…× Chrysoperla sp. ), principally of the Hemiptera order, and receiving food—one of the most important interactions in nature—may explain the ant presence (Araujo, Benatto, Mógor, Penteado, & Zawadneak, 2016; Stadler & Dixon, 2005). The tending ants are important because they protect trees from chewing insects (e.g., Coleoptera and Lepidoptera), and thus reduce the damage caused by herbivory (Gonthier, Ennis, Philpott, Vandermeer, & Perfecto, 2013).…”

“…Traditionally, methods proposed by Leslie 10 or Birch 11 have been widely used to construct age-speci c life tables that focus on female individuals in a population [12][13][14] . For example, female age-or stage-speci c life tables were constructed for phloem-feeding insects such as aphids [15][16][17] , armor scale insects [18][19][20] , soft scale 21,22 , mealybug 23 , and psyllid 24 . However, the life table construction solely based on females may lead to errors in calculating the population parameters, especially when bisexual arthropods are involved 14 .…”
