Abstract:

Thirty two species of tenebrionid beetles were collected using light trap at College of Agriculture campus, Hassan. The activity of tenebrionids was more during new moon day when it is compared to full moon day as the ratio between them is 1.98:1.08. There was significant correlation (r=0.93) between log (catch+1) and log radius for 1 to 6 hours, indicating that tenebrionid beetles are highly early fliers. The minimum temperature, maximum temperature, saturation vapour pressure deficit (SVPD) and rainfall had correlation of +0.39, +0.096, -0.15 and 0.60 respectively with light trap catches.
