AbstractThe effect of artificial diets mixtures on the parasitism efficiency of parasitoid adults on Green Peach aphis Myzus persicae and its effect on life-span of adults female was also tested in laboratory .Result showed that the mixture (haemolymph and water)gave highest parasitism efficiency of parasitoid, number mean of mommies were being 18.76 mummy while number mean of mummies for both mixtures (Glucosamine and water ) and( Honey and jelly and water )were being 13.67 and 11.83 mummy respectively .the longest live –span of adult female when fed on mixtures (honey and jelly and water ),life-span was being 6.133 . Also the result showed that were significant differences efficiently the first generation ,The mixtures ( Honey and jelly and water ) highest parasitism efficiency of parasitoid ,parasitism percentage in Myzus persicae ,and number mean of mommies was being 35%and 17.5 mummy.
