Abstract

A number of insect pests and mites are recorded which are the major limitation of yield and quality of mango production. Though chemical insecticides are recommended for control of these pests, other alternative control measures like use of biocontrol agents should be considered. One of the promising biocontrol agents is the entomopathogenic nematodes. This review finds the work done so far on bioefficacy of entomopathogenic nematodes on important insect pests of mango.
