1. Crabs are polyphagous. They cut the young paddy plants near the ground level and carry them to their burrows for feeding.

2. They are mostly active during nights. Besides this they prepare a series of burrows in the embankment of paddy fields as result of which, water is not retained in the field which is vitally required for crop growth.
