Hippodamia convergens, the convergent lady beetle, is available for aphid control in home gardens and in commercial food production systems throughout the United States and Canada.
The convergent lady beetle, Hippodamia convergens, is one of the most common lady beetles in North America and is found throughout the continent.
Genus: Hippodamia ( Lady beetle type) Species: Convergens (specific ladybug) When you want to learn all there is to know about ladybugs, ladybug classification is just one thing you should know. For such small, whimsical insects, ladybugs are extremely interesting.
The pecan aphid predators, Chrysoperla rufilabris (egg, larva, and adult); adult Hippodamia convergens; Cycloneda sanguinea; Olla v-nigrum; and pupae of the parasite, Aphelinus perpallidus, were tested in the laboratory for mortality to registered commercial pesticides. Concentration-response lines were estimated for C. rufilabris larvae and adults.
Hippodamia Harvest ancestor according to Simpson et al 2019, Arctic Arthropods, GBIF classification, Global Register of Introduced and Invasive Species, Paleobiology Database, Alaskan Arthropods, and Global Biotic Interactions.

The combination of chemical and biological methods to control pests is essential to ensure the sustainability of agricultural system, to reduce using of chemicals products. The objective this work was to evaluate the effects of insecticides on the coccinellid predatory Hyppodamia convergens, the cotton plant, in conditions laboratory and field.
