Abstract: Fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Smith), is a major agricultural pest originating from the tropical and subtropical areas of the Americas. It characteristized by fast migration, broad host range, high reproductive capacity, strong damage ability, and wide adaptability. Nowadays, S. frugiperda has already spread to 21 provinces (city, municipality) in China since it invasion into China at the beginning of this year. It is seriously threating the development of China's corn industry due to its establishment in China. In this paper, the parasitic and predatory natural enemy insects of S. frugiperda and their application status were summarized. Meanwhile, existing problems and advices for the development of natural enemy insects were suggested. The review is expected to serve as a reference for further studies.

Key words: Spodoptera frugiperda, biological control, parasitic natural enemy insect, predatory natural enemy insect
