Fuchs, T.W. and J.A. Harding. 1976. Seasonal abundance of arthropod predators in various habitats in the lower Rio Grande valley of Texas. Environmental Entomology, 5(2): 288-290.

Abstract

Arthropod predators in various habitats were sampled weekly with a D-Vac® vacuum insect collector during 1973–75 in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Data indicate that non-cultivated habitats support larger numbers of predators/unit area than do cultivated habitats. [b]Over 50% of all predators collected were spiders.
