    Abstract : The present investigation was undertaken to judge the feeding deterrent effect of different plant extracts of selected indigenous botanicals viz. Clerodendron siphonanthus, Lantana camara, Lippia geminate and Vitex negundo for management of grubs (larvae) of H. vigintioctopunctata. Results reveal that out of all plant extracts, only five plant extracts showed promising protection power against larvae of H. vigintioctopunctata. The sequence of protection can be arranged in the following descending order on the basis of their respective Ec50 values. i.e. Vitex Seed Extract (0.015) > Lantana unripe fruites extract (0.027) > Vitex leaves extract (0.037) > Clerodendron leaves Extract > (0.197) Clerodendron seed extract (0.231) Lantana leaves extract > (0.319) > Vitex bark extract (0.341) > Clerodendron root extract (0.366) > Lippia leaves extract (0.375) > Lippia bark extract (1.416) > Lippia bark extract (1.457). It is evident that Vitex seed extract was more effective and Lippia bark extract, the least one.
