Technical Abstract: The Diaprepes root weevil is an important invasive insect pest of citrus and many other plant species in Florida. Following first discovery of the weevil in the 1960s near Apopka, the weevil has spread to many new areas in Florida. We present a summary of research activities conducted in Florida to increase and enhance biological control of Diaprepes using egg parasitoids.
