Abstract:

The population of total predatory fauna of ants occurring in brinjal crop, during the course of investigation revealed that, during Kharif season, the maximum number of ants recorded were in case of Camponotus sericeus (28.42 ants/10 plants), followed by Solenopsis geminata (23 ants/10 plants), in rabi and summer similar result was found at Attur farm (unsprayed area) and at sprayed areas Kharif season were C. sericeus (16.25 ants/10 plants), followed by C. compressus (11.58 ants/10 plants) and C. parius (8.92 ants/10 plants), in rabi and summer similar result was found at Chikkaballapur and Doddaballapur areas. The maximum relative abundance was found in case of C. sericeus (11. 93 %), followed by S. geminata (9.66 %), C. compressus (8.40 %) during Kharif season and similar result was observed during rabi and summer season at unsprayed condition, i.e., Bengaluru (Attur Farm) and at sprayed area C. sericeus (23 %), followed by C. compressus (16.67 %) and C. parius (12.83 %) while Monomorium sp. had least species composition (2.88 %) at Chikkaballapur during Kharif season and similar result was observed during rabi and summer season and also at Doddaballapur areas during different seasons.
