Mites: Spray dicofol 18.5 % SC @ 2.5 ml per litre of water.

Beetles, fruit flies and caterpillars
Beetles, fruit flies and caterpillars can be controlled by spraying Malathion 50 EC 1 ml/lit. or Dimethoate 30 EC 1 ml/lit. or Methyl demeton 25 EC 1 ml/lit. 
Do not use DDT, lindane 1.3% dust, copper and sulphur dust as these are phytotoxic.

Downy mildew can be controlled by spraying Mancozeb or Chlorothalonil 2 g/lit. twice at 10 days interval.
Fruits are harvested at tender stage and before 100 % maturity.
