Abstract: To assess the effect of different treatments on natural enemies, the field experiment was conducted at Entomology section, College of Agriculture, Nagpur during kharif season 2016-17, in randomized block design with three replications. Total eight treatments viz., NSE 5%, Neem oil 2% Chlorantraniliprol 18.5 SC, Spinosad 45 SC, Indoxacarb 14.5 SC, Emamectin benzoate 5 SG, Flubendiamide 20 WDG, and control (water spray) were studied. The observations on natural enemies Coccinellids, Spider, Chrysopa/five plant) in pigeon pea was recorded after each spray of above insecticides. The treatment Indoxacarb 14.5 SC recorded minimum number of natural enemies population compared to other treatments including control (water spray) and treatments of NSE 5% and neem oil 2% observed highest in natural enemies population, as compared to all other treatments except control (water spray).
