Defoliators and Sap Sucking Insects of Pigeon-Pea in Barbados, West Indies

Like most other crops, pigeon-peas are attacked by several insects, some of which cause heavy crop losses. These pests require special attention to arrest their damage, while others cause limited damage and need few or no control measures. During these studies, from twenty-two pest species recorded in Barbados, eight were feeding on leaves, and fourteen sucking sap from leaves, stems and pods. A number of indigenous natural enemies attacking these pest were also recorded.
