Pest Management & Diagnosis!

Pomegranate butterfly, Deudorix isocrates (Fab.)

 

Symptoms :

The conspicuous symptoms of damage are offensive smell and excreta of caterpillars oozing out of the entry holes, with the excreta found stuck.  The affected fruits eventually fall down.

  • Remove and destroy all the affected fruits (fruits with exit holes).
  • Control:
  • Spray Decamethrin @ 1ml/litre at the time when more than 50% fruits have set. Repeat after two weeks with carbaryl @ 4 g/L or Fenvalerate @ 1ml/litre in non-rainy season. Quinalphos @ 2.5ml/litre is also effective. The number of sprays depends on severity of infestation.

         Remove flowering weeds especially of compositae family.
