Abstract: Tasar larvae are exposed to the environment, attracting a variety of diseases, pests and predators, resulting in increased larval mortality and a reduction in tasar silk production in India. The most common diseases are virosis, pebrine, muscardine and bacteriosis. Chemicals especially disinfectants play a significant role in tasar sericulture. Chemicals help to control and prevent the spread of diseases, pests and other harmful organisms that can negatively impact tasar silkworm and its host plants. While it is possible to practice tasar sericulture without the use of chemicals, it may be more challenging and less efficient and could result in lower yields and lower quality produce. The use of recommended disinfectants in sericulture ensures clean and hygienic crop production. By implementing proper sanitation and pest management practices, farmers can help to ensure the health and safety of their crops and promote sustainable sericulture practices. Hence for the intended study, the various chemicals and disinfectants used were deliberated in detail. Their importance and usage etc studied were presented .However, it is important to use these chemicals safely and responsibly to minimize any potential negative impacts on the environment and avoid harming the environment wildlife and human health. Hence, understanding and knowing what and how the chemicals used in sericulture and their benefits is important for protecting the environment, human health and the economic viability of tasar sericulture.
