The noctuid moth species Helicoverpa armigera Hubner (Lepidoptera) is a major pest of cotton and other crops causing extensive damages to other crops such as okra, bhindi. These pests have developed resistance to synthetic pesticides which is mainly attributed to detoxification enzymes such as carboxyl esterase. Molecular modeling approaches were used to find the binding affinity of bio-pesticides azadirachtin, plumbagin, pyridalyl and tagitinin C. We report here that the compounds plumbagin and tagitinin C to be potential biopesticides to control the menace of this pest.
