Conservation of Forest Plantation by Reduviid Predator, Acanthaspis Megaspilla (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) Against Odontotermes Obesus (Isoptera: Termitidae), a Bark Pest of Teak, Tectona Gradis


Predatory bug A. megaspilla in each prey densities could prey on O. obesus and was exhibited type II functional response. The number of O. obesus consumed by female predator A. megaspilla can be expressed in Hollings’ disc equation [y’= 0.009 (12-6.20) x]. The maximum predation rate (k= 6.77) were recorded at higher prey densities. Hence, this bug utilized as termitiphagous.

Keywords: Conservation, Forest, ecofriendly, odontotermes obesus, short-duration functional response, tectona gradis
