Abstract

In 1961 the large-scale production of the aphelinid parasite Coccophagoides utilis was initiated. During the seasons of 1962 and 1963, over four million were made available for release against the olive scale, Parlatoria oleae, in colonization sites throughout California.

The factors involved in the production of P. oleae and C. utilis are briefly discussed and the methods and equipment used in the insectary are described and illustrated.
