Abstract– Various studies are going on to restrict the extent of pest manifestations. Many varieties like cabbage, cauliflower, kohlrabi, broccoli, kale, etc. are derived from wild species of cabbage, via hybridization techniques. Phyllotreta crucifera is a major destructor, creating spot holes, on leaves of cabbage & cauliflower. By performing few prevention measures, large scale destructions can be avoided. Monitoring, especially during the seedling phase can help create healthy variants. In the present study a survey has been done in 7 various parts of Madhepura district, during the months of February, March and April to sample coleopteran pests infesting certain vegetables.
