Development of Lutzomyia intermedia and Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae: Phlebotominae) larvae in different diets
WERMELINGER, E. D.;ZANUNCIO, J. C.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842001000300009
Abstract: the objective of this research was to evaluate, in laboratory, the development of lutzomyia intermedia and lutzomyia longipalpis (diptera: psychodidae: phlebotominae) larvae, vectors of leishmaniasis in brazil, in the following diets: industrialized food for rabbits, dogs, hamsters and aquarium fishes, besides liver powder, cooked lettuce, wheat germ, beer yeast, oat, wheat bran and a diet denominated aged food. except wheat bran for l. intermedia, all diets provided adequate development for both species, which showed that any of them can be used in laboratory insectaries for these insects. l. intermedia showed better development with most nutritious diets and both species presented better development with aged food. fungi as an additional nutrient source for l. intermedia and l. longipalpis is suggested.

Nymphal development and feeding preference of Podisus maculiventris (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) on eggs of Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) parasitised or not by Trichogramma brassicae (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)
Oliveira, H. N.;De Clercq, P.;Zanuncio, J. C.;Pratissoli, D.;Pedruzzi, E. P.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842004000300009
Abstract: predation by podisus maculiventris nymphs, a predatory pentatomid, was evaluated with eggs of the flour moth ephestia kuehniella (pyralidae), parasitised or not by trichogramma brassicae (pupae stage). eggs of this pyralid were glued on rectangular cardboard and presented to nymphs of p. maculiventris as food. the pentatomid successfully reached adult stage when feeding on unparasitised eggs, indicating that flour moth eggs can be used as a factitious food for rearing this predator. pentatomid nymphs that received only parasitised eggs died before reaching fourth instar. in choice tests, p. maculiventris showed a preference for preying on unparasitised eggs of e. kuehniella rather than those containing pupae of t. brassicae. these results show that it is possible to combine the use of p. maculiventris with releases of t. brassicae in control programs of lepidopteran pests.
Biology of Brontocoris tabidus (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) fed with Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) larvae
Jusselino-Filho P.,Zanuncio J. C.,Fragoso D. B.,Serr?o J. E
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2003,
Abstract: Development and reproductive performance of Brontocoris tabidus (Signoret) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) fed with Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae) larvae was evaluated. Duration of the nymphal phase of this predator was 31.2 days, with a 44.1% survival rate. Preoviposition and egg incubation periods and number of eggs/egg mass were 8.14 days, 5.6 days, and 45.4, respectively. B. tabidus presented 44.7% egg viability. Female longevity of this predator was 18.4 days. Results are discussed based on this prey use in mass rearing and maintenance of colonies of B. tabidus under laboratory conditions.

Abstract: The use of natural enemies represents an important strategy in programs of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Asopinae predators are reared with alternative prey, but supplementary plant may enhance the fecundity and longevity of their females. The objective of this research was to evaluate the development and reproduction of the predator Brontocoris tabidus Signoret, 1852 (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) fed with Tenebrio molitor L., 1785 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) pupae in a Eucalyptus grandis Hill ex Maiden (Myrtaceae) plant in the field. The duration and survival of the nymphal stage of B. tabidus were 32.07 ± 8.95 days and 77.00 ± 0.42%, respectively with 15.55 ± 8.19 egg masses, 603.00 ± 379.20 eggs and 387.45 ± 291.40 nymphs per female of this predator while longevity of its males and females was 119.80 ± 32.80 and 160.20 ± 42.13 days, respectively. Better results with E. grandis plant in the field and the fact that B. tabidus will be adapted at release time show that this predator should be reared in these conditions.

Abstract: nymphs of podisus nigrispinus (dallas, 1851) were fed with zophobas confusa gebien, 1906, tenebrio molitor linnaeus, 1758 (coleoptera, tenebrionidae) and musca domestica linnaeus, 1758 (diptera, muscidae) under 25±0.5oc, 60±10% of rh and photophase of 12h. nymphal viability of p. nigrispinus were 64.0%, 80.0% and 92.0% with z. confusa, m. domestica and t. molitor, respectively. no differences were found for pre-oviposition period, number of egg masses, number of eggs, egg viability, and longevity for females of this predator fed with any of these preys.

Abstract: The stinkbug Supputius cincticeps (St l) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) can be found in agricultural and forest ecosystems feeding primarily on larvae of Coleoptera and Lepidoptera, where it can be exposed to insecticide applications. This study therefore aimed to evaluate the reproductive potential of'S. cincticeps after exposition to sublethal doses of permethrin (5.74 x 10-3, 5.74 x 10-2, 5.74 x 10-1, 5.74 and 57.44 ppb) through the use of a fertility life table. The development cycle of this predator was determined in order to calculate its net reproductive rate (R0), the infinitesimal (r m) and finite (λ) rates of increase in addition to mean generation time (T). The net reproductive (18.31), infinitesimal (r m) (0.050) and finite (λ) (1.051) rates of increase were higher, while generation time (57.93 days) was shorter for S. cincticeps exposed to 5.74x10-1 ppb of permethrin than in the control. This indicates a higher rate of population increase of this predator when exposed to this permethrin dose

Abstract: palmistichus elaeisis delvare and lasalle (hymenoptera: eulophidae) is a gregarious and polyphagous parasitoid mainly of lepidoptera pupae. the objective of this paper as to study the developent of parasitoid on bombyx mori l. (lepidoptera: bombycidae) pupae exposed to one, nine, 18, 27, 36, 45 or 54 female p. elaeisis, respectively. the females of the parasitoid remained in contact with pupae for 24 hours in glass tubes (14.0 x 2.2 cm), packed in a climatic chamber regulated at 25 ± 2°c, 70 ± 10% relative humidity and photo phase of 12 hours. with the exception of density 1:1 (72.72%), in other densities parasitism was 100%. adults of p. elaeisis did not emerge from pupae at densities of 1:1 and 9:1, but 100.0% of parasitoid emergence was observed at the density of 45:1 and 54.54% at 54:1. the duration of the life cycle of this parasitoid ranged from 20 to 28 days. p. elaeisis produced 49 to 589 descendants per pupa of b. mori. the sex ratio of p. elaeisis ranged from 0.93 ± 0.01 to 0.97 ± 0.01 without differences with 18, 27, 36, 45 and 54 females/host. this parasitoid should be reared with the density of 45 females per pupa of b. mori.
