Abstract: The larval development clearly showed that Drumstick (Sahjan) powder is quite toxic. The data recorded was noted at every five days interval i.e. on the 5th day, the 10th day, the 15th day, the 20th day, the 25th day, the 30th day and the 35th day. Three doses were taken for each treatment i.e. 2gms and 3.5 gms. The data was noticed on the mortality rates and emergence of the larvae. The lowest dose 1 gm brought 9% on the 5th day, 28% on the 10th day and 38% on the 15th day.
