Pink bollworm is a mono-host pest and hence, can be easily managed provided all necessary precautions are taken. Chemical control is difficult because the insect spends most of its time within the fruiting bodies and is not exposed to direct chemical spray. Only pesticides with good residue can help in controlling the pest at egg-hatching stage. This means 4-6 sprays at weekly intervals. Excessive use of pesticides always results in a flare up of secondary pests like army worm, American bollworm and spider mites because sprays perish most of their natural enemies.
The best control of pink bollworm
has been demonstrated with the use of PHEROMONE
. Fields treated with pheromone also have a higher population of predators and parasites that are an important component of integrated pest management. Fields where pheromone products were applied had negligible moth activity compared to chemically controlled cotton fields. The yield of seed cotton improved in pheromone treated fields. A new formulation of pheromone has recently been developed.
