Description: The Aegean Region of Turkey is one of the largest dried fig producers in the world. A Turkish cultivar sarilop (Ficus carica cv. Calimyrna L.) possesses good qualities for drying process, and has been grown extensively for many years in Turkey. Hypoborus ficus is the most common xylophagous insect attacking fig trees in Aydin (Aks¸it et al. 2003). This pest attacks weakened trees, accelerates withering, and can cause death of branches and trees if present in high numbers. Infestations occur throughout the entire year. H. ficus is widespread in the Mediterranean region (Talhouk 1969) and was first documented by Iyriboz (1940) at Izmir in the Aegean region of Turkey
