The maximum populations of C. sexmaculata, C. septempunctata, Syrphid fly and C. carnea to the tune of 0.2, 0.2, 0.66 and 0.2 per plant were registered during 52nd, 7th, 1st and 7th SMW, respectively. Correlation studies stated that, before noon relative humidity exhibited positive significant correlation with C. sexmaculata, C. septempunctata and Syrphid fly population.
