Chemical control of Armyworm/Swarming caterpillar

1. Chemical control may be needed when populations are extremely high.

2. The dosage should be adjusted based on the average size of the larvae.

3. Spraying should be done in the late afternoon just before the larvae climb up for feeding.

4. The damage is generally patchy and hence spray can be directed mostly on affected regions
