Abstract

Tobacco flea beetle (Epitrix hirtipennis Melsh) is one of the most important pests of the Solanaceae family. It can be found in tobacco throughout the whole period of vegetation, causing severe damages both on seedlings and on transplanted tobacco. In the Republic of Macedonia, investigations on the morphology, biology and eradication of this pest were carried out by Krsteska, Stojanoski (5, 6 and 7). Presently, E. hirtipennis is one of the major pests on tobacco in Macedonia, spreading in almost all tobacco producing regions in the country. Having in mind the high consuming ability and expressed poliphagia of E. hirtipennis, the longevity of adults, the great number of generations and resistance to the atmosphere effects, it is necessary to perform protection against tobacco flea beetle. The struggle should be precise in order to achieve visible results.
