Podisus nigrispinus feeds primarily on insect larvae. It has been reared and released in Brazil to control lepidopterous larvae, particularly defoliators of Eucalyptus trees, but inoculative releases and conservation of natural populations in other crops have also been attempted. Aspects favouring...

The natural enemies used against mealybugs (Pseudococcidae) in biological control programmes are reviewed and summarized. Parasitoids have been the most successful agents, especially those of the family Encyrtidae, and have given complete control of a number of major pseudococcid pests. Despite the ...
