The larvae were reared in coconut mesocarp and their development lasted about 144 days, with five to seven instars. However, the mechanisms for host recognition and selection have not been fully elucidated. Trapping and monitoring adults should be started early and continued throughout the season. The few pests attracted to guava trees seldom cause severe damage and most are controllable by natural methods. Incubation period was from six to 14 days. Repeated application of these pesticides led to the development Our survey showed that Z. indianus mechanical approaches at hogplum orchards or farmer’s homestead garden of Patuakhali and Barisal districts. Borers, larval insects that feed on the wood of trees, affect fruit trees including apples, cherries, peaches, pears and plums. The preliminary isolation of the sex pheromone was also made with CH2Cl2 extraction of the female abdominal tips and by Florisil column chromatography.

Guava will grow optimally between 23 and 28°C (73–82°F) but established trees can tolerate short periods at -3 to -2°C (27-28°F) although temperatures below 15°C (60°F) can cause the tree to cease producing fruit. The two themes which merit relevance and recognition here are the use of chemicals directed To study the field ecological processes to develop effective forecasting models for timing management interventions.

Description of adult: There are three widely occurring species of fruit piercing moth: Eudocima salaminia, E. fullonia, E. jordani and E. materna. The observed olfactory plasticity in the plant-volatile-mediated host recognition may be important for the forming of the relationship between yellow peach moth and chestnuts since it allows the polyphagous herbivores to adjust to variation in volatile emission from their host plants. to interfere.
