Artificial Rearing of Reduviid Predators for Pest Management by K. Sahayaraj, R. Balasubramanian

By K. Sahayaraj, R. Balasubramanian

This eye-opening booklet specializes in the improvement of strategies to mass-produce reduviid predators and demanding generalist predators, an pastime that won’t end up adequate if the price of commercialization is prohibitive. Advancing mass creation to the extent of financial feasibility is necessary, in order that those new applied sciences can compete within the open market.

This e-book commences with a evaluate of the variety of reduviid predators in agro-ecosystems world-wide, by way of chapters on their feeding habit, biology, intestine microbiota, their enzyme profile, physique protein and genomics, and DNA and box review studies. the sphere assessment of reduviids, a global project, is addressed within the final chapter.

Each bankruptcy contains a separate end and destiny suggestions. unique details is additionally integrated on constituents and synthetic nutrition instruction, garage and the effect on predators. the bogus rearing of reduviid predator for crop pest administration is a necessary reference and educating software for academics, researchers and extension staff in constructed and constructing nations alike, permitting them to produce reduviid predators and significant usual enemies in biocontrol and bio-intensive built-in pest administration programs.

The publication deals a good source for all people who are engaged on worthy arthropod mass creation. it's also a necessary reference advisor for agricultural and organic sciences scientists, entomologists, crop defense experts, extension staff, and consultants.

In this experiment Rhynocoris marginatus nymphs and adult have the capacity to consume more number of Spodoptera litura larvae, when the predator was reared on oligidic diet. Similarly insect hosts were reared by Rhynocoris marginatus second and fifth nymphal instars and adult consumed by more number of Spodoptera litura and other life stages consumed Dysdercus cingulatus second instar. Hence this reduviid can be used as a biological control agent in crop where Spodoptera litura and Dysdercus cingulatus are present.

The aim of the present chapter is to determine the optimal meridic diet for Rhynocoris marginatus based on the developmental and reproductive status of the predator and also investigate the influence of diet on Rhynocoris marginatus compared with when fed with natural prey. In 2002, we developed two meridic diets [diet 1 and diet 2] based on Spodoptera litura [diet 1] and Bombyx mori [diet 2] whole body-based diet and recorded the feeding behavior of Rhynocoris marginatus.
