Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millspaugh) and chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) are important grain legumes in Asia. These crops are often heavily damaged by insect pests. Farmers in many areas apply insecticides in an attempt to manage these pests. This bulletin provides descriptions of the most common species, their biology, distribution, and damage symptoms. Color photographs are provided for easy identification. Possible modes of control are also included with an emphasis on integrated pest management and reduced reliance on insecticides.
