[Effect of feeding intervals on reproduction and longevity of Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)]
Anais da Sociedade Entomológica do Brasil 27 (1), 77-84
Abstract: The effect of feeding intervals on Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) females was studied. Females were fed during 24 hours after either one, two, four, eight or 16 days with Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae) larvae at 24 ± 3° C, 70 ± 10% RH and photophase of 12 hours. Females of P. nigrispinus fed every one, two and four days produced higher number of eggs (225.4, 184.6 and 135.3 eggs, respectively) than those fed every eight or 16 days (8.3 and 0.0 eggs, respectively). Females fed every four days lived longer (43.0 days) than those fed every eight or 16 days (27.3 and 10.6 days).
