One of the major factors that decides the productivity and profitability in sericulture is the maximization of quality mulberry leaf per unit area. Being a major pest, Glyphodes pyloalis walker takes a heavy toll of mulberry especially from July to October under Kashmir climatic conditions. The damage is mainly caused by the fourth and fifth larval stage of the pest from July to October under Kashmir conditions Though this insect still finds enough time and place on mulberry leaves for its feeding and breeding habits, feeding of such leaves to silk worms affects their growth and development, thereby reducing the quality silk production which ultimately has negative impact on overall growth of silk industry.

Key words: Glyphodes pyloalis, Pest, Mulberry, Sericulture, Kashmir.
