Second combination was of fodder and wheat in MCZ supporting a number of Odonata, Coleoptera and Diptera, The wheat crop, wherever present, supported similar diversity of Orthopteran
and Lepidopteran species.
My numerous observations of orthopterans
and homopterans jumping for several minutes with a spider on their backs before they became paralyzed, support this assumption.

Developmental hosts include the orthopterans
The largest group of edible insects is comprised of Coleopterans (443 species), which is followed by Himenopterans (307 species), Orthopterans
(235 species), and Lepidopterans (228 species).
However, a role for PDH in control of circadian rhythmicity, proposed on the basis of the morphology of the immunoreactive neurons in the brain of orthopterans

Studies on Orthopterans
have shown that the likelihood of attracting a female is typically proportional to call duration (for references, see Table 1).
Cutting of the vegetation triggers a marked change in its nutritional value (Smith and Capinera 2005) and microclimatic conditions (Stebaev and Nikitina 1976), affecting the habitat potential for orthopterans
The identification of the arthropods was performed with keys as those of [23, 25] for Coleopterans and  for identifying Orthopterans
marmorata consumed isopterans most often (65 and 78%, respectively), followed by homopterans (33 and 22%), coleopterans (30 and 56%), orthopterans
(27 and 33%), and arachnids (20 and 44%).
