The joint action between Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin and synthetic pyrethroids was tested against third instar larvae of Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) on different hosts. Combined application of B. bassiana + pyrethroids at LC25 + LC25 on different hosts proved effective as the mortality was 2.67-16.99 and 7.17-26.00 per cent more than the expected mortality at LC50 of B. bassiana alone and LC50 of pyrethroids alone respectively.
