In nature there are some predators like earwigs which feed on the loose eggs. However, there are no biocontrol agents capable of reducing the pest population. Several laboratories have tested and tried to introduce biocontrol agents like entomopathogenic nematodes, fungal pathogens etc., but with very little success. Although some success rate was reported in some regions, it was mainly confined to cooler weather conditions only. Hence, more and more innovative ideas should be attempted.
