S. scripta is obligate aphidophagous species. It is most widely distributed in almost all tobacco growing regions in R.Macedonia. (Prilep, Bitola, Krusevo, Kavadaci, Valandovo, Strumica, Radovis, Stip, Veles, Sv. Nikole). It is characteristic for all types of open habitats.
In laboratory conditions, larvae of this species consume 300-365 aphids of M. persicae. Their voracity increases in the second, and particularly in the third larval stage. The larva stage is for 7 to 14 days. Development of one generation lasts about 17 days.
S. scripta is important natural regulator of aphid population on tobacco.
