Insect pests of Melia dubia (Malai Vembu in Tamil, Hebbevu in Kannada, Konda Veppa in Telugu)

Dear Friends,

The time has come I think, to discuss the kind of pests that normally attack Melia dubia. To clear the doubts of our farmer friends, I have used here some pictures from the presentation of Dr.A.Balu, Scientist, Forest Protection Division, IFGTB, Coimbatore. You won't ask questions I hope, since they are from the most authentic source. Thanks to Dr.Balu on behalf of all of you.
