Female Feeding Aid in Common Earwig Forficula Auricu-Laria L.

Abstract : In common earwig, Fur ficula auricularia L., parental care is necessary for the develop ment of eggs. However, so far the selective value of family group remains as an outstanding question. Our experiment shows that there is a female contribution to larval food intake, and this feeding aid can improve significantly the larval survival rate and development. However, the female care alone has no effect on larval survival and development.
