The content of this paper is largely a summary of the parasite introductory work at the Japanese Beetle Laboratory, Riverton, N. J. This work was started in 1920 and is still being continued. The important points discussed are the importation of an important Tachinid, Cenleter cinerea Ald., in 1920 and its successful establishment in New Jersey in 1923 and the subsequent spread in 1924. The establishment of a second colony of this parasite in Pennsylvania during 1924 is also mentioned. The failure of refrigeration shipping methods as used for Ochromeigenia ormioides Town., and the methods of rearing large shipments of a Dexiid parasite, Prosena Siberta Fab., are also discussed. There are a few concluding remarks on the rearing of Tiphia popilliavora Roh
