Based on a series of laboratory experiments the effects of four rhyparochromids (Heteroptera: Lygaeoidea: Rhyparochromidae) species on seed germination of four species of figs (Moraceae) were tested. Rhyparochromids considerably reduced seed germination depending on the species and the species of fig; it varied from 60 to more than 90%. Seed germination was also affected by agaonids (Hymenoptera: Agaonidae); the proportion of seeds damaged by agaonids varied from 44 to 63%.
