Outbreaks of nun moth (Lymantria monacha L.) in Denmark with remarks on their control



Outbreaks of nun moth (Lymantria monacha L.) in Denmark with remarks on their control



Anzeiger fuer Schaedlingskunde Pflanzenschutz Umweltschutz 595: 86-89



Outbreaks of the Nun Moth (Lymantria monacha L.) are known from 11 Danish localities. Three started in 1971-72, and 5 in the period 1979-81. Several insecticides were used controlling the outbreaks. Very efficient was endosulfan.sbd.and immediate.sbd.but inflicted some bird losses. Very efficient was also difluron, but its slow action could not be accepted at the higher population levels. Less efficient was trichlorfon and Bacillus thuringiensis (Dipel). The latter failed completely in one year presumably due to a temperature fall. Prognosis and especially the need for a two-year prognosis are discussed.
