Biological Control of the Pomegranate Whitefly, Siphoninus phillyreae (Homoptera:Aleyrodidae:Aleyrodinae) by Using the Bioagent, Clitostethus arcuatus (Coleoptera:Coccinellidae)
S. Abd-Rabou

Abstract:
This research was canied out to study the biological control of this pest by mass rearing, releasing and evaluation of the most important predator Clitostethus arcuatus (Rossi) (Coleoptera:Coccinellidae). About 480 000 were released in different locations in Egypt on apple (Pyrus malus L.) olive (Olea europaea), Pear (Pyrus communis), pomegranate (Punica granatum) and infested by S. phillyreae. The results indicated that the population of whitefly species was decreased after releasing C. arcuatus in all locations in Egypt. Also, the population of C. arcuatus was increased in all experiments after releasing. During the present research C. arcuatus was established on olive in Fayum and on pomegranate in Assuit for the first time.
