Özet

Sympherobius pygmaeus (Rambur) (Neuroptera: Hemerobiidae) is a predator recorded on several pest species, including mealybug in Turkey. The present study was performed to determine the relationship between growth rate and temperature effects on S. pygmaeus. Development and fecundity were investigated at 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 +/- 1 degrees C and 60%+/- 10 relative humidity with 16 hours lighting in a growth chamber.
