Abstract

It is difficult to study the feeding behavior of subterranean insects. To gain the kind of knowledge readily obtained with insects that live on aerial parts of plants often requires methods that are laborious and time-consuming. As a result, many gaps remain in our understanding of the feeding behavior of Diabrotica larvae.
