Based on the dominance of the identified prey items only, we found scarabaeid
larvae to be the most dominant prey (73.
It also reported that this technique is generally applied for the collection of moths, scarabaeid
beetles (Lepidoptera, Scarabaeidae), and some Hemiptera and Hymenoptera.
The eastern mole generally feeds heavily on earthworms and scarabaeid
larvae, commonly called grubworms (1), (2), (3), (4), (5).
beetles, spotted cucumber beetles (Diabrotica undecimpunctata), green stinkbugs, carabid beetles, other beetles, cicadellid bugs and lepidopterans were the most important foods in both cases, although the order varied somewhat.
My first others were the Arabs, the scarabaeid
, the French, the Germans.
Females are then returned to the ground where they burrow in search of host Scarabaeid
beetle larvae, which are paralyzed before oviposition.
an apparently rare species known today only from Iowa and Illinois (Gordon 1985) [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 16 OMITTED], and numerous remains of a scarabaeid
provisionally identified as Macrodactylus subspinosus (Fab.
Revision of the scarabaeid
beetles of the Phyllophaga subgenus Listrochelus of the U.
Large hard-bodied prey, such as scarabaeid
beetles (maximum size in North America >100 mm; Arnett, 1985), only occurred in the diet in trace amounts.
The activity time, body size and manner of transporting scats are the main strategies for resource partitioning among Neotropical scarabaeid
beetles (Halffter et al.
Mites in this genus have occasionally been observed eating eggs and larvae of scarabaeid
For example, field counts of sod-webworms (Crambus roman), scarabaeid
larvae (Popillia japonica) and billbugs (Sphenophorus spp.
Among the beetles, scarabaeid
beetles predominated at the Frump Farm, at Oakland City College N, at Rushville, and at Williamsport, whereas Diabrotica was predominant at Mecca, Trimble, Roachdale, Vevay and Westport.
However, digging under sugarcane plants yielded no scarabaeid
grubs, but rather what appeared to be curculionid grubs (larvae).
Kairomones from scarabaeid
grubs and their frass as cues in below-ground host location by the parasitoids Tiphia vernalis and Tiphia pygidialis.
