Abstract: The result of the investigation on field persistent toxicity of various insecticides on grub and adult stages of C. sexmaculata revealed that due to weather effect, the toxicity of all the insecticide reduced with time. The treatment of control (water spray) had no detrimental effect on predator. Among the different insecticides tested, profenophos and indoxacarb were found to be extremely harmful to the grub stage while novaluron and profenophos were grouped as extremely harmful to the adult stage. Further, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam were comparatively harmless to slightly harmful against the both stages. Rest of the all insecticides showed moderately harmful to the both stages
