Experiments were conducted at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Jamalpur during the period from September 2017 to March 2018 to find out the appropriate management approach for controlling major insect pests in chilli. Spraying of Spinosad (Success 2.5SC) and Abamectin (Toximite 1.8EC) along with blue & yellow sticky traps was found effective for controlling sucking insect pest in chilli. Mass trapping of Spodoptera litura and Helicoverpa armigera along with the spraying SNPV and HNPV @ 0.2g/l of water and Spinosad (Success 2.5SC) @ 1.2ml/l of water was found effective for controlling borer complex of chilli. A long-term pest population decrease is not achieved through only spraying chemical insecticides. In contrast, mass trapping with pheromone lures along with different bio-pesticides are eco-friendly, inexpensive, reliable and it facilitates the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) concept.
