This contribution focuses on recent interceptions and introductions of alien scale insects and their current distribution in European and Mediterranean countries. Data and collections were gathered in markets, nurseries, and botanical gardens, mostly in Italy, either indoors or outdoors. New or recent records of the following alien species are presented: Exallomochlus hispidus (Morrison); Ferrisia virgata (Cockerell) (Pseudococcidae); Coccus viridis (Green); Milviscutulus mangiferae (Green…

The cotton mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) in Israel: pest status, host plants and natural enemies
TLDR
In Israel, the cotton mealybug Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley, an invasive scale insect, was reported for the first time in the Jordan Valley in 2008 on basil and bell pepper and has spread to almost every region of Israel and developed high populations on several ornamental plants.
First record of Icerya seychellarum and confirmed occurrence of Aulacaspis tubercularis (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha) in Italy
The Seychelles scale, Icerya seychellarum (Westwood, 1855) (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha: Monophlebidae), is reported for the first time in Italy. Moreover, the occurrence of the white mango scale,
Exotic ladybirds for biological control of herbivorous insects – a review
TLDR
The risk assessment data for this species is summarized and the field research investigating the ecological impact on European aphidophagous predators is reviewed, contributing to improved understanding of ladybirds as exotic BC agents.
The impact of insecticides on the cotton mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis (Tinsley): Efficacy on potato, a new record of host plant in Egypt
TLDR
Seven insecticides belonging to different chemical groups were tested for their effect against nymphs and adult females of P. solenopsis on potato under field conditions and obtained results indicated that sulfoxaflor, abamectin + thiamethoxam and spirotetramat had the highest efficacy.

TLDR
This report is an updated review on its biology, ecology and sustainable control measures, aimed to help in the development of integrated management strategies of this pest in the main mango growing areas of Spain and other countries of the Mediterranean Basin.
Density and phenology of the invasive mealybug Delottococcus aberiae on citrus: implications for integrated pest management
TLDR
Examination of the seasonal trend of D. aberiae in citrus, using several sampling methods, as a first step to develop an integrated pest management program, shows that the pest completes multiple generations per year, two of them being clearly defined and resulting in high populations.
New Mediterranean records of Trabutina mannipara (Hemprich & Ehrenberg 1829) (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha: Pseudococcidae)
TLDR
The occurrence of Trabutina mannipara (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha) is reported for the first time at Linosa and Libya and the potential impact of this species is discussed.

TLDR
The introduction of ornamental plants into Italy for commercial and hobby purposes has provided scale insects with many chances of dispersion and the effect of global warming may have played an important role, directly enhancing the survival and development of the insects in their new environment.
