Abstract: Aleurocanthus spiniferus (Quaintance) (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae), was first reported from Kosrae in 1982. In 1983, Encarsia smithi (Silvestri) (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) was released for control of the whitefly. The parasite was recovered in 1984. At that time it parasitized 77 percent of the whiteflies. In 1986, 86 percent of the whiteflies were parasitized.
