Die Fühler sind recht kurz und verdicken sich am Ende leicht. Unfortunately, Adalia bipunctata seems to have a rather poor reputation for efficacy in biological control of aphids in greenhouses see Omkar, Identification of conditions for successful aphid control by ladybirds in greenhouses.
After a brief encounter with a female, a male showed area-restricted searching behaviour. It is suggested that 2-spot ladybirds are Batesian mimics of 7-spot ladybirds - in other words 7-spot ladybirds are not palatable to predators, so the palatable 2-spot ladybirds have evolved to resemble 7-spot ladybirds to gain protection from predators. The eggs darken after days, and they are subject to attack by predators, particularly the coccinellid Adalia bipunctata. Betulaphis brevipilosa, a flattened, sessile species, was the least successful aphid at actively escaping from two-spot ladybird larvae, but could passively escape detection when coccinellid larvae walked over nymphs and did not perceive them.
Adalia is also a generalist predator eating a wide range of pests. There are further orange to whitish spots down the dorsal midline and laterally on abdominal segment four. Third instar larvae are grey-black with orange to whitish areas on the lateral apical margin of the pronotum and on the dorsolateral tubercles of the first abdominal segment; first and second instar larvae are black to grey with no coloured areas.

It was highly mobile and frequently walked away from coccinellid larvae. Burgio, G. Werren et al. Ladybirds avoid laying eggs in such patches by responding to a species specific oviposition deterring pheromone present in the tracks of larvae. Distribute the contents onto the leaves or in URB universal release boxes evenly throughout the crop, by gently shaking and rotating the bottle. Hemptinne et al. An efficacy index developed to assess the effectiveness of foliage-inhabiting predators indicated that those with the greatest potential were Chrysopa larvae and adult Coccinella septempunctata in , and adult Coccinella septempunctata and Campylomma verbasci in Im Winter nimmt die Stoffwechselaktivität der Marienkäfer ab, sie überwintern, indem sie an geschützten Orten in die Winterstarre fallen und von ihrem im Sommer angelegten Fettvorrat zehren.
Journal of Applied Entomology , Betulaphis brevipilosa, a flattened, sessile species, was the least successful aphid at actively escaping from two-spot ladybird larvae, but could passively escape detection when coccinellid larvae walked over nymphs and did not perceive them. Insect predators often aggregate to patches of high prey density, and use prey chemicals as cues for oviposition. Abstract Blazhievskaya, A.
They investigated the effects of different diets, designed to mimic possible conditions in the wild, on the survival, development, and adult size of Harmonia axyridis and Adalia bipunctata. Abstract Kehrli, P. For example, Hamalainen et al. Coleoptera: Coccinellidae.
