Abstract:

The imported parasites Goniozus legneri Gordh, Copidosomopsis (Pentalitomastix) plethorica Caltagirone, and Diadegma sp. were reared and released in almond plantations in Israel to control the carob moth, Spectrobates (= Ectomyelois) ceratoniae (Zeller). About 32,000 G. legneri and 3.5 million C. plethorica were released at four locations in the north of the country (Lower Galilee) and at four locations in the south (Southern Coastal Plain), Diadegma sp. (ca. 1500 adults) were released only in the south. G. legneri were recovered in large numbers in all release plots 4 years after the last release. The highest percent of parasitization by this parasite (30.8%) was recorded at one location in the south. C. plethorica was recovered in the north at one location only, at a level of 2.6%. It was more abundant in the south but still at a lower rate of parasitism than G. legneri. Diadegma sp. was not recovered in any of the release plots 1 year after the release.
