Abstract
The three main pests of sweet potatoes. Cylas. Alcidodes and Aegeria all live in the vines and tubers of the crop where they are well protected from applications of insecticides. In all cases, however, strict enforcement of cultural control measures will reduce infestation very markedly, leading to higher yields and a more palatable crop. The minor pests listed are normally of little consequence and it will only be in rare cases that the control measures given will be required.
