Abstract: In an attempt to revalidate indigenous pest control practices enliving in certain hillocks of Tamil Nadu, more than 125 practices covering crops like rice, vegetables, etc. store produce and domestic habitations have been documented. From the collection, based on popular usage, certain pest control practices were selected and subjected them for their efficacy in the laboratory and field conditions. All of them showed their potency against various pests.
