Abstract: Under laboratory conditions, when reared on Phorodon humuli aphid, Adalia bipunctata deposited 1011 ova and mean longevity of males and females was 55-73 days respectively. When reared on Aphis fabae or A. fabae + Aphis craccivora diet, females of A. bipunctata deposited 41-63 ova, and mean longevity of males and females was 20-32 days respectively.
Larvae reared on P. humuli completed development in average 8.9 days, and mortality was 16.7%. Larvae reared on A. fabae, or A. fabae + A. craccivora aphids, completed development in 14-15 days, and mortality was 83-90%.
It is concluded that P. humuli aphid is an essential food for A. bipunctata, whereas A. fabae and A. craccivora aphids, are unsuitable foods.
