Abstract

The study aimed to found out the potential efficacy of some bio- and synthetic insecticides used against Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in tomato greenhouses. Chlorantraniliprole+abamectin, metaflumizone, azadirachtin, emamectin benzoate, spinosad, Bacillus thuringiensis and B. thuringiensis+azadirachtin mixture were applied by spraying method on tomato leaf, which 5 third-stage larvae existed on. Distilled water was used as a control to compare with insecticides. Each of the applications was performed in six replications. The assessments were done at the 1, 3, 5 and 7 DAA (Days After Application) according to the number of live individuals and larval weight.
