The population trends of Cydia pomonella L. and Eriosoma lanigerum were studied on apple fruit orchard. These two pests caused serious losses in district Mastung, Balochistan Province, Pakistan. The results of weekly mean population dynamics showed that the mean population of Cydia pomonella L. on each apple fruit tree varied. For the first week it varied from 0.0 to 8.0 in which the maximum attack of the Codling moth was 8.0 for treatment (T) 6. In the same way the highest attack in the week; first, second, third, fourth, to tenth was 3.5, 8.0, 4.5, 3.0, 3.0, 4.0, 4.5, 4.5, and 4.5 respectively. While the mean population dynamics of (Eriosoma lanigerum) ranged from 0.0 to 4.0 in first week. Among the population maximum invasion of Woolly apple aphid for week first, second, third, fourth, to tenth was 4.0, 3.0, 3.0, 6.0, 6.0, 3, 4, 3, 4 and 6 respectively. The implementation of traditional and automated control was found more obvious way to cope diseases influences. The absence of technical awareness, Finance shortage, and high cost of inputs were the major adoption affecting elements among farmers. Micro credit schemes should be started by the communal sector to lessen the financial problem and trainings should be given by the entomologist to adopt alternate way to manage the insect pests.
