Abstract:

Different natural enemies recorded from aphid colonies on rose included two coccinellid predators (Coccinella septempunctata and Cheilomenes sexmaculata), syrphid fly, spider (Oxyopes sp.) and chrysopid (Chrysoperla carnea). Among these, ladybird beetle, C. septempunctata followed by syrphid fly maggot was found to be the most abundant predator feeding on aphids colony. Among these, ladybird beetle, C. septempunctata was the most abundant. Its highest abundance (46.64%) was recorded at experimental site. Syrphid fly was the second most abundant predator with 32.16 per cent abundance followed by C. sexmaculata (12.66 %) at experimental site. Remaining predatory fauna were also found intermittently predating upon the aphid populations on rose.
