Abstract:

Studies on biology of drumstick leaf eating caterpillar, Noorda blitealis, Walker was conducted in the laboratory, Department of Agricultural Entomology at College of Agriculture Vijayapur in the year 2018-19. Biology of Noorda blitealis Walker revealed that female moth laid the eggs singly at the ventral side of the leaf petiole and on the tip of the leaves rather than in cluster. The mean incubation period was 2.8 ± 0.79 days. Caterpillar moulted four times and there were five larval instars were noticed during study. Total larval period was 12.9 ± 1.85 days, while pre-pupal and pupal period was 2.2 ± 0.42 and 8.1 ± 1.37 days, respectively. The fecundity was 96.7 ± 5.65 eggs. Longevity of male moth was 6.3 ± 1.06 and 2.3 ± 0.48 days, while, female is 6.6 ± 1.17 and 3.0 ± 0.82 days with and without honey solution, respectively.
