Keeping in view the importance of pomegranate fruit borer (Virachola isocrates) different insecticides, Cypermethrin, Bifenthrin, Lambda-Cyhalothrin and Methomyl were tested against pomegranate fruit borer at Agriculture Research Institute Mingora Swat during summer 2015. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design, with three replications. Each replication was assigned with 5 treatments (Cypermethrin, lambda cyhalothrin, Methomyl, Bifenthrin and Control). Results showed that all the chemical application proved significantly better from control plot. Most effective was Lambda-Cyhalothrin which reduced the infestation level from 6.98 to 1.68 followed by methomyl (1.73), bifenthrin (2.05) and cypermethrin (2.58). Highest average infestation (8.14) was recorded in control plots.
