Abstract:

Teak Tectona grandis (Linnaeus), is the most preferred afforested species of Odisha. It is attacked by 42 species of insect pests out of which Hyblaea puera, Eutectona machaeralis, Pteroma plagiophelps, Orgia albipunctata, Oxya velox, Atractomorpha crenulata, Myllocerus sp., Odontotermes obesus, Sahyadrasus malabaricus, Indarbela quadrinotata, Ferissia virgata, Celosterna scabrator, Aphis gossypii, Tricentrus bicolour, Podisus brevispinus were found as major pests. Out of the total reported species, 52% were recorded as foliage feeders, 31% as sap feeders, 7% as stem borers and bark feeders each and 3% recorded as root feeders. A total of 24 species of predators, parasites and pathogens including 5 species of bird predators were recorded from the experimental sites located in and around Bhubaneswr, Odisha. Majority of the natural enemies including the Entomogenic nematode Hexamermis sps. was recorded from the major defoliating pest, Hyblaea puera Cramer infesting teak in this region.
