Abstract : Taxonomy plays an important role in the field of applied biology because unless and until the identity of the pests is correctly determined, no control measure can work. A wrong identification may upset the entire control strategy.  The acridids is a group of economically important pests of various crops which need to be collected from agricultural fields, preserved and identified based on sound taxonomic characters.
