The young larvae feed on the underside of the leaf on which they hatch before moving on to other parts of the plant.
Both are rather variable in colouring but have brownish markings on a cream background. The larvae or caterpillars feed on all stages of the plants, although pavonwna rarely attack seedlings. These include braconid wasps and tachinid flies, and in India the larvae are preyed on by a predatory bug in the Pentatomidae family. Continuing to use www.

In Samoa, a strain of Trichogramma chilonis has been found that lays its eggs in the eggs of Crocidolomia. Thus, microbial pesticides oavonana alternative control methods such as the use of essential oils and other botanicals which are generally considered environmentally friendly and less toxic to non-target organisms, are currently being explored.
Pacific Pests and Pathogens Fact Sheet. Even a single caterpillar is capable of causing significant damage and, therefore, economic loss.
Cabbage head caterpillar Crocidolomia binotalis. If the apical meristem is damaged, multiple heads may be produced or the plant may die.
