Abstract: Present study assessed if semiochemical cues left by an aphidophagous beetle, M. sexmaculatus influenced foraging behaviour of a phytophagous beetle, Z. bicolorata on noxious weed, P. hysterophorus. The lower predation attributes of Z. bicolorata in presence of M. sexmaculatus semiochemical footprints confirms they interfere with weed biological control. © 2018, © 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
