Abstract:
The predatory effect of female adults of four Coccinellid species on two aphid species was examined under laboratory conditions in controlled environmental chambers. This study was conducted on single rose leaves in transparent small plastic cages at varying proportions of predator/total number of aphids. The predators used proved to be effective for the biological control of aphids under controlled conditions. It is proposed to use C. septempunctata in biological control programs in greenhouses and fully controlled conditions, only under high pest densities (at proportions over 1:30 predator/aphids). It is also proposed to use M. picta in biological control programs in greenhouses, as a specialized predator of A. spiraecola at proportions close to 1:30 predator/aphids. A. bipunctata can be used as a predator for T. aurantii at the same proportions. H. variegata can be used as a predator of both aphid species with satisfying effectiveness at proportions close to 1:30 predator/aphids.
