is extremely wary of crossing roads.
(Coleoptera: Carabidae) diversity, activity density, and community structure in a diversified agroecosystem.
Several ground beetle
species are phytophagous and feed on the seeds of troublesome weeds species including common ragweed, common lamb's quarters and giant foxtail (Lundgren, 2005) and thus help to regulate weed populations; their weed predation is largely under estimated (Liebman and Gallandt, 1997; Tooley and Brust, 2002).
Survey in Organic and Conventional Potato Areas
Washington, August 14 (ANI): In a new research, scientists have found that ground beetles

Within the ground beetle
family, a few eat seeds, a few concentrate near water, and some readily climb trees and consume arboreal insects, including aphids and forest tent caterpillars.
