Functional response of the predator Coleoptera: The base color dark brown to black with yellowish relatively large, separated dots. Temperature-Dependent Development of Eriopis connexa Coleoptera: Aphididaeobserved that in temperate regions, rearings are subject to regional climatic changes, which drastically limits rearings due to reduced prey reproduction in the winter. Most people guessed aphids, a natural choice, but soybean aphids have not yet made it to the soybean fields of South America thankfully!
