The biology and mass rearing of Eucanthecona furcellata Wolf, a polyphagous predator, was studied under laboratory conditions.


The predator has a total life cycle (egg to adult) of 46.25 days. The egg hatched 6 days after laying. The nymphs undergo seven instars with each stage ranging from 2.0 ‑ 2.35 days.
