On the other hand, in Telostylinus angusticollis, both sexes elevated life-span for 65% on nutrient poor diet (Adler et al. 2013). melanogaster without ovaries (Mair et al. 2004) it was suggested that reallocation of resources to reproduction is not the main cause of observed effects. As stressed by Piper et al. (2011), exploring the effects of dietary balance is more informative than dietary dilution. Insects encountering imbalanced food can rebalance nutrient intake and utilization by behavioural and physiological mechanisms (Bede et al.
