A review is presented of the principal arthropod pests of pulse crops in the tropics. The pests are grouped taxonomically but are discussed roughly in the order in which they colonise a crop. Pests of stored legumes are not dealt with, even though in some cases infestation begins in the field. Information is presented on distribution, damage, the life-cycle and control of leafhoppers, aphids, beanflies, beetles, Lepidoptera, thrips and pod-sucking Hemiptera. Future strategies for pest control are discussed
