Abstract

The study was carried out since 9th March, 2020. The universe of the study was the University Campus Peshawar. The study major objective was that to examine the detergents role in aphids control in the roses plants in the university campus Peshawar. Among the all houses of the campus only 10 houses were purposely selected where the aphids attack was sever. In the second stage from each house six plants at same level were chosen and six type detergents (0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%) were sprayed one by one on the plants and results were noted. The 0% spray damage was 50 percent and leafs were found curl and black but the 5% spray result was found interesting and there all aphids were found died and the shoots of the plant were found better than before and the attack of the aphid was ended but the 10 % spray result was a little bad and it has damaged to few shoots of the plant but the 15% result was not good and has damaged 50 % plants shoots severely while the 20% spray roses plants condition was worse and all plants were damaged and color was turned to black but the 25 % spray has damaged all the plants and its further growth was impossible. The study concluded that 5% detergent spray is favorable for aphid control in the University Campus Peshawar. The author also stressed on the good quarantine which play great role in aphids control. The people of the university go from one place to another and do not care of the quarantine. They carried aphids from one place to another and make the environment unfavorable which later on destroyed the plants of the roses and affect the quality of the flower in the campus which devalue the economic value of the flower.
