Mendel, Z., Zehavi, A., Tam, S., & Madar, Z. 1991 Colonization trials with Cryptochetum iceryae and Rodolia iceryae for improved biological control of Icerya purchasi in Israel.. Biological Control 1(1): 68-74.
Notes: Abstract: C. iceryae developed on I. purchasi growing on 17 host plant species during rearing experiments; R. iceryae could not complete its development on either I. purchasi or I. aegyptiaca; two years after release at nine sites planted with Erythrina corallodendrum, Spartium junceum or Retama raetam and infested with I. purchasi, it is still unknown whether C. iceryae has become established. Keywords: biological control.
