Abstract

The diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) is the greatest threat to crucifer through out the world including Pakistan, sometime causing more than 90% crop loss and estimated cost over US$ 1 billion annually. Prior to the introduction of synthetic insecticides diamondback moths were never reported as the major pests of crucifers, however with widespread use of synthetic insecticides on crucifer important natural enemies were eliminated which led to continue use of synthetic insecticides and eventual insecticide resistance and control failure. This review provides a global overview of the biology and ecology of diamondback moth including past, present and perspective future management strategies with special reference to Pakistan.
