Abstract

Planococcus citri and P. lilacinus are major sucking pests of coffee causes considerable crop loss. Pests were naturally suppressed by the presence of indigenous and exotic natural enemies in the ecosystem. The occurrence of natural enemies was surveyed in different blocks of RCRS farm and Spalgis epius, Pullus sp. and Leptomastix dactylopii were found abundant. Lack of pesticide application favours the establishment of natural enemies.
