Atmospheric pollution and insect outbreaks: the case of the larch bud moth (Zeiraphera diniana Gn.)



Atmospheric pollution and insect outbreaks: the case of the larch bud moth (Zeiraphera diniana Gn.)



Mitteilungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Allgemeine und Angewandte Entomologie 5(1-4): 58-62



Data on the distribution of eggs of Zeiraphera diniana on Norway spruce in the Erz Mts., German Democratic Republic, in 1966 and 1969 showed that oviposition in male inflorescences, old larval webbing or niches due to the breaking of branches occurred in addition to, and apparently in preference to, oviposition in the normal sites, i.e. beneath the remains of bud scales of old nodes. The egg densities in the tree tops were thus tripled.
