Author(s): Shanmugapriya V and Muralidharan CM
Abstract: Laboratory evaluation of chemical insecticides and botanicals against eggs and grubs of Cheilomenes sexmaculatus revealed that imidacloprid 0.005% produced highest mortality of followed by dimethoate 0.03% > thiamethoxam 0.05% > diafenthiuron 0.02% > acephate 0.075% > Neem oil 0.3%. Dimethoate 0.03%, the widely used chemical against sucking pests, showed a highest per cent mortality next to Imidacloprid 0.005 % which draws a serious attention and consideration for further pest management programmes. Out of the chemicals used, Acephate 0.075 % recorded minimum per cent mortality and the botanical insecticide neem 0.3% proved to be safest to all stages of C. sexmaculatus.
