Turkey is the second country with 21.000,000 bearing pistachio trees and 64.000 tons of production per year. Amount of production per tree is not very high compare to the bearing pistachio tree figures. Pest and disease are one of the main reasons for this low production.

In various studies, 40 injurious and benefical species were determined. Among these injurious pests, twelve of them could be reached economically injurious levels. Chemical, mechanical, cultural and biological control methods are used for these main pests in the approach of IPM concept.
