The relative toxicity of different insecticides against adult of Propylea sp. showed that novaluron 10 EC 0.0075 per cent was slightly harmful to adults of Propylea sp. While, other remaining insecticides proved to be harmless to adult viz. thiamethoxam 25 WG 0.005 per cent, acetamiprid 20 SP 0.004 per cent, flonicamid 50 WG 0.0075 per cent, clothianidin 50 WDG 0.003 per cent, diafenthiuron 50 WP 0.04 per cent, imidacloprid 17.8 SL 0.005 per cent, spinosad 45 SC 0.02 per cent. Apart from this, azadirachtin 1500 ppm 0.15 per cent showed nil mortality to adults and found safer to the adults of Propylea sp. during present investigation.
