Faced upon the research status of Aculops lycopersici, the importance of population dynamic has been put forward. The feasibility and superiority of cellular automata applied in the simulation of Aculops lycopersici has been discussed. This paper has put forward an Aculops lycopersici population dynamic model prototype based on cellular automata, the result showed that this model can be used to simulate the dynamic population of Aculops lycopersici. When it is applied, the improvement of parameter should be considered, at the same time, this model could provide reference for the simulation of other species of insect.
