Abstract: This study has been carried out with the purpose of determining the parasitoids of the species Scolytidae causing damage on fig trees and parasitization rates between 2016 and 2017. Damages caused by the Scolytus kirschii (Skalitzky, 1876) species on fig plant have been determined for the first time. In this study, the species Cheiropachus quadrum (Fabricius, 1787) and Rhaphitelus ladenbergi (Ratzeburg 1844) have been determined as the parasitoids of the species S. kirschii. While the species C. quadrum (Fabricius, 1787) is known as the parasitoid of S. kirschii is some countries outside Turkey, the species R. ladenbergi has been recorded as the parasitoid on S. kirschii for the first time. Of the parasitoids exiting from twigs contaminated with the pest, 78.11% has been determined as R. ladenbergi, while 21.89% determined as C. quadrum.
