Present study was aimed to investigate the effect of phytopesticide nimbecidine on oxidative enzymes. The sub-lethal concentration of the phytopesticide nimbecidine (0.00028 ppm 1/10th of LC50) was studied on Sphaerodema rusticum for 7, 14 and 21 days of exposure. It reveals significant variation in lactate dehydrogense (LDH), succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) activities. The enzyme activity of SDH and LDH in the fat body, testis and seminal vesicle of nimbecidine treated insects were gradually decreased than the control insects. In contrast, the activity of MDH and GDH in the fat body, testis and seminal vesicle of nimbecidine treated insects were gradually increased than the control insects. These changes were more pronounced in treated tissues than compared to control tissues and it may be due to synergistic effect of nimbecidine.
