Abstract

Nonconventional pest management involves techniques that do not rely solely on insecticides. These techniques can well be adopted in organic cultivation and in situations where application of pesticides is neither desirable nor economical. In tea, during the last few years, there have been remarkable efforts to adopt nonchemical methods against insect pests crucial for ensuring food safety and environmental quality. The concept of using cultural, physical, mechanical, and biological approaches and botanicals are gaining popularity. Frequent and reliable monitoring and early detection of pest populations are one of the most critical components of this approach. Since spiders are key predators resulting populations of select pests, application of low-volume sprays of pesticides saves their cohorts in tea ecosystems.
