Pests that damage crops during rainy season

  • Bark-eating insects: The incidence of this pest is more in litchi trees. Usually these pests make tunnels or holes in the main trunk and thick branches of the tree. During the day, these pests live in holes made on stems and branches. At night, these insects come out and eat the bark of the tree. Due to their infestation, plant growth stops and yields are reduced. As the outbreak progresses, the trees gradually dry up. To control this pest, clear the nets from the main trunks and branches of the tree and try to kill the insects by inserting iron wire into the tunnel or small hole made by the insect. Apart from this, sprinkle 2 ml Chlorpyrifos in three liters of water.

  • Leaf borer: These insects lay eggs on leaves. The larvae that emerge from the eggs feed on the tender leaves of plants. Due to which small holes start appearing in the leaves. As the infestation progresses, the leaves become reticulated. To control this pest, destroy the eggs. To control this pest, mix 5 to 10 ml countryside cutter in 15 liters of water and spray it. Apart from this, you can spray by mixing 7-8 ml Coragen 18.5 percent SC in 15 liters of water.
