ABSTRACT
In Al-Taif city pomegranate tree attack by various pests including twelve piercing sucking, two boring and one chewing insects. The highest infestation by aphids and thrips were recorded on the leaf more than the fruits. There was no significant variation between total mean of total aphids infestation in all investigated area during fruiting sea sons 2008, and 2009. While total infestation of Thrips were recorded highly significant variation Al-Shafa during 2008; and moderate significant variation (355.4/50 leaves and fruits/tree). At middle Al-Taif during 2009. There are a positive relationship between the population density of parasite (syrphid fty) and its prey (aphids).
