Insect Pests - Aphids, Thrips, Leaf eaters and Spider Mites

INSECT PESTS - Aphids, Thrips, Leaf  eaters and Spider Mites:
The aphids suck the leaf sap. Thrips feed on flower tips causing black spots on the fruits and spider mites colonize on the lower side of banana leaves and cause damage. Sometimes caterpillars and leaf eaters also damage the crop severely.
For aphids spray of Neemazol 2.5ml /lt or Rogar (Dimethoate) 2ml/ lt has proved effective. Skirting of bunches by perforated polybags can prevent damage by thrips. For spider mites and leaf eater or caterpillars spray of Kethane 2ml /lt and Cybermethrin 2ml/lt respectively, is recommended.
