Cabbage butterfly
Or Belyanka cabbage (Pieris brassicae L.). Daily sulfur (Pieridae). Bright white or bright yellow wings with small black spots on the ends of wings. Cabbage eats all kinds of cultures, not just cabbage.
Interestingly, only males of this species be awarded even spots. Females also tend to have a light yellow color.
Cabbage butterfly - butterfly medium size (wingspan 6-7 cm). Caterpillar reaches 3.5 cm, has 16 legs, greenish-yellow color with a few black hairs and dots. During the year, gives 2 generation. Hibernate pupa.
Moths fly from April to June, at this time lay eggs on various wild cruciferous plants, whose leaves and feed on caterpillars. This generation of little harm.
By mid-summer, the caterpillars begin okuklyatsya, and at the end of July and August there is a second generation of butterflies that fly up to September. Moths of this generation lay eggs on the turnips, cabbage, radish, rapeseed, mustard, etc. The second generation of caterpillars devour the plants in the gardens above, sometimes completely.
We have cabbage and natural enemies, such as beetle-rider. It lays its larva directly into the cocoon of a butterfly, where she eats the future butterfly inside. Birds also prefer the cabbage butterfly as a nutritious diet.
