  1. Data are represented as a mean ± SD of each of fifteen replicates (n = 15) in percentage. Same letters indicate no significant differences (p ≤ 0.05) between different test formulations (a, b, c) and concentrations (w, x, y, z) used in our study according to Tukey’s HSD and Games Howell’s test. Italics show formulation and concentrations having highest potential as a nanopesticide. NF nanoformulations; 7: non-nanoparent compound 7. Methoxyfenozide was used as the standard (STD) in this study
