Studies on the biology and ecology of Pharoscymnus numidicus (Coccinellidae), an important predator of the date palm scale Parlatoria blanchardi



Studies on the biology and ecology of Pharoscymnus numidicus (Coccinellidae), an important predator of the date palm scale Parlatoria blanchardi



Annls Soc. ent. Fr, 3: 4, 1053-1065



Pharoscymnus numidicus (Pic) is an important predator of Parlatoria blanchardu (Targ.) on date palm in Israel. As it had been eradicated from some plantations by chemical spraying, its bionomics were studied in the laboratory in 1963-65, with the aim of mass rearing and re-establishment in the field. The Coccinellid was reared at controlled temperature and humidity with P. blanchardii as food.
