Abstract

The feeding response of predators on eggs and nymphal densities of white-backed plant hopper (WBPH) was studied. The results indicate that the number of eggs and nymphs of WBPH consumed by the mirid bug greatly increased as prey density increased. It was also concluded that Cyrtorhinus Lividipennis is a voracious predator on eggs and nymphs of Sogatellafurcifera compared to the predator Pardosa pseudoannulata.
