The present study was conducted at Department of Entomology, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam during 2017. The maximum pre oviposition period of 6.8±0.38 days and oviposition 30.0±0.33 was recorded when larvae of C. carnea was fed on eggs of S. litura and minimum 5.6±0.25; 23.6±1.04 days respectively were observed on A. craccivora nymphs which compared to eggs of C. cephalonica (6.2±0.37 and 27.4±0.51). Highest egg hatchability (88.0±2.0), adult emergence (76.0±4.00) was obtained when larvae were fed with C. cephalonica eggs whereas lowest on S. litura (70.0±3.16 and 62.0±2.0) respectively. In that order, the highest adult longevity of 41.6±0.52 (female) and 34.6±0.26 (male) was seen in S. litura while the shortest female longevity 39.6±0.51 male 29.0±0.45 days on C. cephalonica. Sex ratio was slightly female biased on all three hosts where females survived longer than males.
