Abstract/Contents:"The ground beetle Pterostichus malanarius was found to be able to reduce the numbers of soil-dwelling leatherjackets in the laboratory, possibly hunting underground using olfactory stimuli. The beetles were more efficient at reducing leatherjacket numbers in the spring than in the autumn and although P. melanarius was most active in August, adults that have overwintered emerge to feed in the spring when leatherjacket control would be most effective."
