Citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, a vector of citrus greening disease, is an insect pest of citrus. From 1983 to 1990 the Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute introduced Tamarixia radiate (Waterston) from Reunion and evaluated its efficiency against D. citri based on its controlling ability, synchronization with host, competition or synergism with Diaphorencyrtus diaphorinae (Lin and Tao), and parasitism by hyperparasitoids. The influence of a disturbed habitat on fluctuations in the population of D. citri and its parasitoids was interpreted, using biological data such as longevity, oviposition behavior and reproduction type. The use of parasitoids in the IPM for D. citri and greening disease is discussed.
