Monitoring: Inspect crops weekly during the vegetative stage and twice weekly from very early budding onwards until crops are no longer susceptible to attack (late podding)... Crops should be scouted for looper eggs and moths to pinpoint the start of infestations and to increase the chance of success of biopesticides such as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)... Small loopers (less than 12 mm long) can be controlled with Bt; more than one application may be required...

Loopers can be distinguished from helicoverpa by: their 'looping' action when walking by their body, which tapers to the head they have only two pairs of hind legs, as opposed to four for helicoverpa... Loopers appear susceptible to all insecticides used for helicoverpa control, with the exception of Gemstar and Vivus (NPVs) which only act against helicoverpa... Dipel (Bt) is far more effective against loopers than against helicoverpa but thorough coverage is required for best results...

A number of thrips species can affect peanuts but their damage is minor and infrequent and should not be a problem in irrigated crops... Thrips may also attack flowers which can lead to flower abortion... Control if threshold exceeds 4-6 thrips per flower...
