Products for controlling Heliothis (Helicoverpa armigera)
 
The adult heliothis (Helicoverpa (syn. Heliothis) armigera) moth has light green wings with a series of lighter color bands that span a distance of 1.5 inches. Adults lay eggs singly on leaves of targeted host plants during early evening. Eggs are laid on the flower buds of geranium. Other flowers receive their complement of eggs on the leaves. The larval budworms are striped and quite variable in color from dark brown to red or even green depending in part on the plant they are feeding on. Young larvae tunnel primarily through small buds and stems while larger caterpillars chew holes in flower buds, petals and leaves. Larvae take one month to eat their way to maturity.
Damage by the larvae includes: 
feeding on developing ovaries and flower buds 
tunneling in plant stems
feeding on plant leaves and flower petals 
Host Range
Heliothis attacks a number of fruits such as citrus, strawberries, ginger, cape gooseberries, and vegetables including beans and peas, capsicums, celery, brassicas, lettuce, sweet corn, tomatoes, as well as field crops of navy beans, soybeans, pigeon peas, chickpeas, sunflower, sorghum, maize, cotton, tobacco and winter cereals.
Sadbhav-SRISTI Sanshodhan Laboratory, (SRISTI) has developed a few Growth Regulators with an ability to even reduce the population of this pest as well as other larval pests. Listed below are such Growth Regulators:

Products for controlling Aphids (Aphis gossypii Glover)
 
The winged adults are about 1.25 mm long, soft bodied, and yellow to dark green with a black head and thorax. The wings are held rooflike over the abdomen at rest. Wingless adults tend to be 1.0 to 1.5 mm long, uniform in color, and yellow to dark green. The antennae and cornicles are shorter than those of winged adults. Cornicles are small, tail-pipe-like structures on the end of the body. Pale individuals tend to be smaller and to have fewer antennal segments than dark individuals. 
Nymphs 
Nymphs resemble adult aphids except for size (about 0.5 to 1.0 mm long). Those destined to be winged adults have wing buds in the later instars.
Damage 
It feeds by piercing the plant surface with its threadlike mouthparts to suck out plant juices. This feeding causes distorted growth, decreased yield, reduced quality of yield, and prematurely ripened fruit. The fruit may be covered by the feeding aphids' honeydew and by cast skins. 
 
It transmits several important plant viruses including cucumber mosaic, onion yellow dwarf, citrus quick decline, lily symptomless diseases, and lily rosette.
Host Range

Melons and other cucurbits, okra, hops, strawberries, beans, spinach, tomatoes, clover, asparagus, citrus, catalpa, violet, hydrangea, begonia, ground ivy, and weeds are some melon aphid hosts. They have been discovered feeding on plants in 25 plant families. The melon aphid is an important pest of cotton and is also called the cotton aphid.

Products for controlling White Fly (Bemicia tabaci)
 
This pest is one of the most irritating to protected crops. They suck up large amounts of sap from the plant and secrete the sugars as honeydew. This unfortunately makes the leaves sticky and susceptible to rot and attacks by fungus. These pests affect all types of plants including both crops and ornamentals, both indoors and out. These pests have also been known to carry viruses, which poses an even greater threat. 

The greenhouse whitefly crawler has four or possibly five leg segments and 2-3 antenal segments. Segmentation is not clear and most specimens will appear to have only three leg segments and two antennal segments. The crawler may be transparent to opaque, ranging in color from light green to yellow, light brown through dark brown and black. Small amounts of powdery white wax are usually produced after the crawler settles and begins feeding. The pupal cases of this species can vary depending on the leaf surface (glabrous vs. hairy). When seen from the side, are circular with flat tops, like a tuna fish can, with the filaments emerging from the top of the can. 
Damage 
Leaf damage. Feeding white flies will cause leaves to turn up and brown, disabling them to perform their responsibilities. Damaged leaves look bad and promote decay fungus and bacteria to form.
 
Sap drainage. White flies have an insatiable hunger for plant sap and will suck as much of it as they can from the host plant. Young host plants will not be able to meet these demands and don't stand much of a chance to survive; adult plants which loose vital sap are more prone to disease, heat stress and less likely to rebound from any environmental shock.
 
This pest is a vector of Lettuce infectious yellow virus.
 
Host Range

The host range of the greenhouse whitefly is estimated at about 200 plant species, mostly in the families crucifereae, Leguminosae, Malvaceae, and Solanaceae. The insect may attack far more plant species in the greenhouse environment.
