Lady beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) tracks deter oviposition by the goldeneyed lacewing, Chrysopa oculata
Download [PDF File]
Field-collected female goldeneyed lacewing (Chrysopa oculata) strongly avoided ovipositing on substrates exposed over 24 h to three of four lady beetle species tested, resulting in circa 3-fold higher egg deposition on control versus coccinellid-exposed substrates. The effect was stage-specific for Coleomegilla maculata; it was observed for adult and third-instar larvae but not for unfed first-instar larvae.
