The use of pesticides against larvae of the tea moth

Subtropicheskie Kul' tury ( 6): 84-90

The use of pesticides against larvae of the tea moth

Descriptive notes are given on the stages of Parametriotes theae infesting tea in the Republic of Georgia, in the former USSR, and an account is given of its biology and control. The variety Kolkhid is chiefly attacked, on which the young larvae feed in the fairly coarse leaves in autumn (1 to over 80 per leaf), later moving to the shoot pedicels where they overwinter. The numbers and quality of the coarse leaves are reduced, and with heavy infestation, plants may dry out.
