The main goal of this research project is to understand the damage caused by the miner Tuta absoluta Meyrick and make a comparison between the tomato damage caused by the tomato leaf miner in the spring and summer harvests of tomatoes. According to our surveys the damages on tomatoes were much larger in the second, apart from damaged tomatoes in the first harvest. Tomato plants from the first harvest, most evident, had damages on the tomato leaves, and it is important to emphasize that on the tomato plants from the first harvest were observed damages on the flower buds and fruits of tomatoes, but only in individual cases. The damages caused by the tomato leaf miner on tomato plants from the second harvest of Minerva were visible at all organs of the plant. The damages were considerable on the leaves, but significant damages were made on flower buds, and fruits of tomato plant. In this harvest, it can be said that damages caused by tomato leaf miner T. absoluta, on this experimental plot were up 100%.
