Investigations on influence of abiotic factors on occurrence of predators on safflower were carried out on the Research Farm of Department of Agricultural Entomology, College of Agriculture, Latur (VNKMV, Parbhani) during rabi 2020-21. 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. However, none of the weather parameters had a significant influence on the C. carnea population.
