It is estimated that the planting of pinus in Brazil exceeds 2 million hectares comprising mainly two species Pinus taeda and P. elliottii. Due to the expansion of this culture and the often inappropriate cultural methods, this crop became increasingly susceptible to pest insects (Zaleski et al., 2005). Among these the aphids are outstanding due to their characteristics such as high fertility, presence of both wingless and winged forms, thus facilitating dispersal, parthenogenetic reproduction that coupled to the favorable Brazilian climatic conditions make them one of the most important pests of Pinus spp. plantations (Penteado et al., 2004).(AU)
