Host foliage in the susceptibility of forest sites in central California to outbreaks of the Douglas-fir tussock moth, Orgyia pseudotsugata (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)



Host foliage in the susceptibility of forest sites in central California to outbreaks of the Douglas-fir tussock moth, Orgyia pseudotsugata (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)



Canadian Entomologist 113(4): 325-332



Food-plant foliage was evaluated for non-preference and antibiosis by field rearing larvae of Orgyia pseudotsugata (McDunn.) on white fir (Abies concolor) at typical outbreak and non-outbreak forest sites in central California. Non-preference was evaluated by comparing frass production, and antibiosis by comparing survival, pupation and fecundity on the different sites. Typical outbreak sites had a lower site index and higher plant moisture stress than typical non-outbreak sites.
