Identification and determination of insect pests are key components of integrated pest management. This experiment was conducted at Teaching and Research farm, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) during early and late planting seasons of 2011 and 2012. The experiment was arranged and demarcated in a randomized complete block design. Eight insects were observed – Phyllotreta cruciferae, Monolepta spp, Zonocerus variegatus, Aulacophora africana, Diabrotica undecimpunctata, Dacus…
