Podiline contains the predatory bug Podisus maculiventris. This species is sometimes called the ‘spined soldier bug’. It is a large and distinctive bug which is a generalist predator of larger, soft-bodied pests. It’s particularly good for controlling a wide range of Lepidopteran pests because it can kill caterpillars that are much larger than itself.
