Abstract :
Study was conducted to determine the effect of artificial diets on the development of immature stages of Chrysoperla carnea (stephens) under laboratory conditions during 2015 at Temperature 26±2 and Relative humidity 65±5 % in the Bio-control laboratory of Entomology Department, FCPT, SAU, Tandojam. The artificial diets from jelly of different flavors were prepared. Five treatments i.e. T1 = Mango jelly, T2 = Banana Jelly, T3 = Pudding T4 = Mix jelly (Banana jelly 10 g+3 g egg whitish+3g Yeast+80 ml water) and T5 = Control (eggs of S. cerealella). The result presented that first instar larvae of C. carnea survived on different artificial diets in plastic tube as well as glass tube. Maximum larval development was recorded 12.08 ± 1.08 and 10.5 ± 1.11 days reared in plastic and glass tube on diet D4, followed by diets D1, D2 and D3, respectively. The third instar larva not survived longer in both plastic and glass tube. Similarly minimum development time was observed 8.6 ± 0.56 and 8.5 ± 0.76 days reared in plastic and glass tube on diet D5 (control), whereas, the pupal period was seen 1.8 ± 0.77 and 5.3 ± 1.33 days reared in plastic and glass tube on same diet. The results further revealed that when second instar larvae of C. carnea reared on artificial diets in plastic and glass tube it indicated the maximum larval development was recorded 13.10 ± 1.03 and 10.2 ± 1.12 days reared on diet D4, followed by diets D4, D1 and D3, respectively. Similarly, third instar larvae not lined more in both plastic and glass tube and not transformed into subsequent stage.
