EGG STORAGE OF Podisus nigrispinus (HEMIPTERA: PENTATOMIDAE) PREDATORS AT LOW TEMPERATURES

Abstract: -Podisus nigrispinus are bedbug predators that are used as biological control agents of defoliating larvae in eucalypt plantations. The mass rearing of natural enemies produces large numbers of insects, but the number of predators produced may not coincide with the timing of the outbreaks of pest populations in the field. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of different storage periods on the eggs of P. nigrispinus at low temperatures of 5, 13 and 15°C. The treatments consisted of periods of 5, 1… Show more

“…This technique presents multiple advantages: it allows the storage of sufficient numbers of beneficial insects for release in the field when required, improving the efficiency of the rearing process (Leopold et al, 1998;Prasad & Ansari, 2000;Colinet & Hance, 2010;Rathee & Ram, 2018). It permits synchronisation of the life cycles of multiple cohorts, facilitating the availability of beneficials during periods of high demand (Riddick & Wu, 2010;Costa et al, 2016). It ensures sufficient stocks if any unexpected problem compromises production, such as disease, failure to keep the correct conditions, or genetic deterioration (Leopold, 2007).…”

“…It was found that adults decreased compared to the control group, but no change was observed between the cold treatment groups. Temperature changes affect the life cycles of insects and vary according to their developmental stages (Ludwig, 1956;Bowler, 1967;Mirth & Riddiford, 2007;Costa et al, 2016;Mitchella et al, 2017;Arbab, 2019). This may be due to an increase in weight with the increase in tolerance to low temperature, as well as an increase in lipid storage (Mitchella et al, 2017;Paul et al, 2017;Beukeboom, 2018).…”

“…Prolongation of exposure to cold may cause irreversible loss of these activities (Rathee & Ram, 2018). Costa et al (2016) found in a study of eggs and nymphs of Podisus nigrispinus Say, 1832 (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) that most embryos died at 5ºC storage. They suggested that eggs can be stored at 15ºC for a maximum of 15 d.…”
