Abstract

The studies that were conducted in 2011 and 2012 about the pest insects at tobacco, at four localities in Strumica region, showed that the most important insect pests that cause damage to tobacco leaves are: the green peach aphid – Myzus persicae Sulz. (Homoptera: Aphididae), the onion trips – Thrips tabaci Lind. (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and the tobacco flea beetle – Epitrix hirtipennis Melsh. (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). In both years of research the greatest number showed Myzus persicae Sulz. and the lowest, Epitrix hirtipennis Melsh. In both years of research the green peach aphid is the most represented in the locality Nova Maala, while the lowest incidence in both years showed in the locality Kosturino. The onion trips (Thrips tabaci Lind) in 2011 and 2012 is the most represented in the locality Ilovica, and the lowest number representation, in both years of investigation, shows in the locality Radichevo. The tobacco flea beetle (Epitrix hirtipennis Melsh.), in both years of testing, as the most numerous is registered in the locality Kosturino, while the lowest numbers shows in the locality Nova Maala.
