O The spotted lady beetle, Coleomegilla maculata. D) The twice-stabbed lady beetle, Chilocorus stigma. stigma, Figure lOd) is a predator of many species of scale insects. Stethorus punctum, an important predator of spider mites in apple orchards throughout Michigan, Pennsylvania, and western New York, is found sporadically in Illinois. Adults are tiny (3 mm), round, shiny, black beetles. Both adults and larvae feed on mites, and they are most often found where spider mite populations are high (15 or more mites per leaf). Adults overwinter in debris at the base of apple trees or in fields or wooded areas near orchards. Although Stethorus punctum is susceptible to standard rates of most orchard insecticides and miticides, adults are mobile and can fly into orchards after spray residues have declined. Ground Beetles (Family Carabidae) and Rove Beetles (Family Staphylinidae). Adult and larval ground beetles and rove beetles prey on a wide range of insects and are especially important as pre- dators of caterpillars and other soft-bodied insects in field crops, forests, and many other habitats. Together these two families of beetles include nearly 5,000 species that are widely distributed throughout North America. (See Figure 11.) Both ground beetles and rove beetles are commonly found under plant debris and beneath.
