Chapter synopsis: This chapter focuses on seasonal, occasional and minor pests of tea, which cause damage to tea plants largely through feeding processes. The chapter considers a variety of factors associated with each of these pests, including their geographical distribution, appearance, the damage caused and their respective biologies and ecologies. It also looks ahead to future research into these pests, including understanding their habits and habitats, their sensitivity to temperature, humidity and climate change in general.
