Abstract:

Biology and feeding potential of Coccinella septempunctata was studied in the laboratory condition during 2013 in different months pertaining to different temperature regimes on Cowpea aphid, Aphis craccivora. During the cooler months of January and November, the life stages are prolonged and in the warmer months of March and May the life stages are shorter for the coccinellid. In January, when the mean temperature was 21.7ºC, the total developmental period from egg to adult stage, took 22.4±0.67 days whereas, in May, at 32.7ºC, the total developmental periods was 15.2±0.01days, again when temperature increased in September, the total developmental periods increased to 16.7±0.64 days. Similar trends were observed in fecundity and egg viability. During the larval stage, the beetle consumed 582.2+39.19 aphids whereas, the male and female consumed 1575.2+80.33 and 1589.3+68.17 aphids respectively.
