Abstract: The field experiment were conducted at Research Cum Instructional Farm at IGKV, Raipur (C.G.) during kharif 2018. The til hawk moth appeared during 36th SMW i.e. 1st week of September with a mean population of 0.08 til hawk moth / plant. The peak population were 2nd week of October (41st SMW) with a mean population of 0.48 til hawk moth / plant. Thereafter, the population declined and reached to its minimum levels of 0.36 til hawk moth / plant during 3rd week of October (42nd SMW).The correlation between til hawk moth, Acherontia styx and weather parameters during kharif 2018 results indicated that the population showed significant positive correlation with maximum temperature (r = 0.692), sunshine hours (r = 0.757), while, significant negative correlation morning relative humidity (r= - 0.727) and evening relative humidity (r = - 0.674).
