The study was conducted in order to develop some alternative methods for controlling Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess) which led to significant damages on tomato in 2008-2009. Effects of two different doses of Neem (Neem Azal T/S) on L. trifolii larvae and their important parasitoids were examined under laboratory and greenhouse conditions. It was resulted that Neem could control L. trifolii larvae efficiently. In addition, Neem also has shown less impact on parasitoids of the pest than cyromazine, used as a comparative agent with a percentage of parasitism close to that of control.
