  • Notes: In order to determine some factors that affect predation by Cryptolaemus montrouzieri, the functional and numerical response to seven densities of third instar nymphs of Maconellicoccus hirsutus (5–10–40–70–100–130 and 160) was tested. We evaluated larval instar I, II, III and adult female.
