Abstract


Survey of the insect pests and their natural enemies associated
with faba bean was conducted at El-Kharga Oasis, New Valley
Governorate (Egypt) during the months of mid-October to April of
2015 and 2017. In total 15614 insects belonging to 7 orders and 16
families were collected and identified. The most abundant orders
were Hymenoptera (7 families) and followed by Hemiptera (3
families). The most common pest species were cowpea aphid, Aphis
carccivora Koch, leafhoppers, Empoasca sp., and black cutworm,
Agrotis ipsilon (Huf.) Beneficial insects collected included several
predatory families (Coccinelidae, Chrysopidae and Sphecidae) but
only low numbers of parasitoids (Pteromalidae) and pollinators
(Apidae and Halictidae). The results of this study represent an
important baseline data for the design and implementation of
strategies for faba bean protection in Egypt.
