Aphids attacking fruit trees and associated natural enemies in Egypt



Alexandria Journal of Agricultural Research 39(2): 231-252



Fifteen Aphidoidea species attacking fruit trees were collected from 6 localities in Egypt in 1991-93. These species belonged to 9 genera (from the Aphididae and Pemphigidae). Damage caused and economic importance of the species are indicated and discussed. A total of 14 species of insect predators, representing 10 genera from the Hemiptera, Diptera, Coleoptera and Neuroptera, was collected associated with the aphid colonies in the field.
