Abstract:The leather beetle (D. vulpinus Fab.) has been used with very good results for certain kinds of insecticidal experiments. This insect can be reared simply and dependably in large numbers throughout the year. Compared to some insects it is very resistant to certain toxic compounds and serves very well in measuring their insecticidal efficiency.
