Abstract

Aphid parasitoids of the Aphidiidae (Hymenoptera) family are monoparasites on plant aphids. Females lay eggs in aphid’s larvae. Inside them, the growth and formation of pupae of the parasite takes place. The final effect of parasitising is dying of the host, which makes the aphid parasitoids important bioregulators of tobacco aphids. The species of Aphidiidae (Hymenoptera) that were isolated in our investigations were Praon volucre Haliday and Aphidius ervi Haliday, the former being found in a greater number. Growth of the population of aphid parasitoids continuously follows the growth of aphids population and reaches its maximum from mid-August to mid- September.
