Kashif Kamran, Asmatullah Kakar, Sana Arif and Asim Iqbal

The aim of present study was to evaluate efficacy of the insect repellent technique with insecticide implantation technique checked against larval instars of Aeolesthes sarta under field conditions in Quetta district, Baluchistan Province. The reported research work was conducted at the larval emergence during the first week of April 2014 till the last week of March 2015. The insect repellent and insecticide implantation techniques were applied on red delicious apple trees (Malus domestica) due to high level of infestations. Aluminium phosphide showed highest mortality rate (52.43%) and least mortality rate (29.09%) was recorded on petrol plugging during insecticide implantation technique. It was concluded that insect repellant technique completely failed in controlling the population density of this pest.
