Following 2-3 days, hatchlings bore into the storage compartment or principal branches for the most part at the forking spot and make burrow downwards. There is just a single hatchling in each opening, and there might be 2-16 openings in each tree, contingent on the force of pervasion and age of the tree. By ceaselessly eating up the tissues, it burrows through the stem and branches. The caterpillars stay inside the drilled openings during the day and emerge around evening time to take care of the bark. The went-after trees show the presence of windings and smooth displays loaded with frass and faeces. Because of taking care of in the storage compartment or principal branches, the movement of sap is disturbed and in the event of extreme invasion, the development of the tree is captured.

As a preventive measure, splashing of the went after trunk and branches with 0.05%DDVP might be finished. Litchi Leaf Roller

The rate of leaf roller is accounted for from July to February. The quantity of hatchlings is the most noteworthy from December to February, going before the blooming time of litchi. The rearing time is from August to February because at that time new leaf flush is free and confined reproducing happens during a slow time of year (Walk to July) on substitute has, for example, Kath-Jamun (Eugenia jambolana) and Chhota amaltas (Cassia tora) developing around litchi plantations.
