The larval population of H. armigera was recorded higher during 2nd week of November. The larval population of E. atomosawas higher during 4th week of November In case of L. boeticus, the higher population was noticed during 5th week of October. Bright sunshine hours, maximum temperature and evaporation were significantly positively correlated while, wind speed, rainfall and rainy days showed significant negative correlation with larval population of H. armigera. Maximum temperature and bright sunshine hours showed significant positive correlation with larval population of E. atomosa. The larval population of L. boeticus significantly positively correlated maximum temperature, bright sunshine hours and evaporation whereas, wind speed was significantly negatively correlated with larval population in average of two years results.

Key words: Population, H. armigera, E. atomosa, L. boeticus, Correlation
