Abstract: The looper caterpillar, Buzura suppressaria Guen. is one of the major defoliating pests of tea plantations of North-East India, causing heavy crop losses. The pest is of endemic nature, with four to five broods, each of 50-60 days duration in a year. Maximum damage takes place during pre-monsoon period (March to June) followed by a reduction in monsoon months and again a slow pickup during the winter months. A large-scale mortality of B. suppressaria is known during rainy season since many years in the tea plantations of the Darjeeling foothills. Natural mortality of the pest, reported earlier, was suspected to be due to bacterial infection only but our studies have confirmed that it can also be due to Baculovirus, which is being reported from Darjeeling Terai of India for the first time.
