Examples of this are the European red mite control by the native coccinellid
mite predator, Stethorus punctum LeConte (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) (Biddinger et al.
Keeping in view the limited work on these important beetles, an extensive faunal survey was conducted in the district Sargodha (32Adeg05'02" N and 72Adeg40'18" E), Pakistan to assess the species richness and distribution of coccinellid
beetles in seven selected regions (Bhera, Bhalwal, Kot Momin, Sahiwal, Sargodha, Shahpur and Silanwali).
But their impact on ACP is not high, especially in comparison to coccinellid
predator species, which appear to be significantly regulating ACP populations (Michaud 2004).
Food consumption and utilisation by larvae of two coccinellid
predators, Scymnus levaillanti and Cycloneda sanguinea, on cotton aphid, Aphis gossypii.
Population of coccinellid
predators was recorded only during 2015 with no significant difference (F=0.
Number of coccinellid
larvae (CL) at Wanda's orchard was significantly higher than the other variables, indicating that these are individuals with a larger presence in this orchard, appearing in greater numbers in October and December 2012.
2000), making up quite an attractive botanical species for this coccinellid
(Smith, 1965; Lundgren et al.
Approximately 4000 species of coccinellids
are present all over the world  and 71 species of Coccinellid
predators are documented in pests of different crops in Pakistan .
Foraging behavior of the coccinellid
Nephus includens (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) in response to Aphis gossypii (Hemiptera: Aphididae) with particular emphasis on larval parasitism.
Baker SC, Elek JA, Bashford R, Paterson SC, Madden J and Battaglia M (2003) Inundative release of coccinellid
beetles into eucalypt plantations for biological control of chrysomelid leaf beetles.
Functional Response of Two Coccinellid
Predators, Scymnus levaillanti and Cycloneaa sanguinea, to the Cotton Aphid, Aphis gossypii.
Given the "face-to-face" nature of coccinellid
courtship, it seems more likely that pronotal patterns would be used to communicate information to conspecifics as opposed to elytron patterns.
