Abstract


PARASITOIDS ATTACKING THE MEDITERRANEAN BLACK SCALE, SAISSETIA OLEAE (HEMIPTERA: COCCIDAE) ON OLIVE IN EGYPT.

Saissetia oleae is an important pest of olive trees in Egypt. A survey of the parasitoids of S. oleae was carried out monthly between April 1995 and March 1997 in three different locations in Egypt. Five species of Encyrtidae, a species of Pteromalidae and an aphelinid hyperparasite were found. Three of these records were new for Egypt.

Key words: survey, rearing methods, percentage parasitism, Diversinervus elegans, Metaphycus flavus, M. zebratus, Metaphycus spp., Scutellista caerulea, Marietta leopardina.
