Padmanaban, B., & Daniel, M. 2003 Natural enemies of the oriental yellow scale, Aonidiella orientalis (Newstead) (Homoptera: Diaspididae).. Indian Journal of Entomology 65(3): 422-424.
Notes: The natural enemies of A. orientalis infesting arecanut were surveyed in Kerala and Karnataka, India during 1992. A. orientalis colonized arecanut leaves, leaf sheaths, inflorescences, and tender and mature nuts, as well as banana leaves planted in arecanut gardens. Aside from A. orientalis, Lepidosaphes sp. and Chionaspis dilata were found infesting the bunches and leaves of arecanut. Chilocorus circumdatus, Chilocorus nigritus, Scymnus, Pseudospidimerus flaviceps, Podothrips, Aleurodothrips fasciapennis and predaceous mites were found infecting armoured scales infesting arecanut.
