Host trees, feeding habits and food deficiency tolerance of the pine processionary caterpillar



Host trees, feeding habits and food deficiency tolerance of the pine processionary caterpillar



La Yaaran 29(1/2): 16-25, 31-32



Field and laboratory studies on Thaumetopoea wilkinsoni in Israel are reported. The only true hosts of the pest in Israel are Pinus spp., especially P. canariensis and P. halepensis; alternate hosts include Cedrus deodara, C. libani, and Cupressus sempervirens; the larvae can survive for some time on Cedrus atlantica and Casuarina spp. Largest populations of larvae were in 4- to 9-yr-old forest plots, but larvae also developed on 1-yr-old saplings and very old trees.
