Almond cultivation is considered to have greateconomic importance in Turkey. Approximately13% of the total almond production of Turkey isobtained from Diyarbakir, Elazig and Mardin(Anonymous 2002).One of the most important reasons for a recentdecrease in almond production, is the problem ofplant protection. The damage caused by pestspecies is one of the most important problems.
