Abstract

Biology of Achaea janata Linneaus was studied on the two principal hosts viz., castor and rose to find suitable host for development of this insect under laboratory conditions. Castor was found more suitable host than rose on the basis of more number of eggs, shorter larval and pupal period with lower larval and pupal mortality and higher per cent adult emergence.
