Food consumption and fecundity of insects vary with life style and feeding pattern. In general, species which feed during the larval and adult stages and maintain a smaller biomass, allocate a higher percentage of the ingested energy to egg production (e.g.

Homeostatic mechanisms involving the regulation of the rates and efficiency of food consumption and utilization are reviewed. Adjustment in the rates and efficiencies of consumption and utilization of food during switching on from one host plant to another as well as the compensatory tactics among the consumer species are discussed.
