Factors affecting feeding site preferences of lightbrown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), on apple trees in New Zealand



Factors affecting feeding site preferences of lightbrown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), on apple trees in New Zealand



New Zealand Journal of Crop and Horticultural Science 28(4): 235-243



The infestation of apple (Malus domestica) trees by Epiphyas postvittana (Walker) larvae was studied over 3 years in Nelson and Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Fresh damage to leaves increased progressively during the season, although in Nelson it declined in April. Fruit damage was first detected in December and increased throughout the season. The incidence of fruit damage was most strongly correlated with the surface area of fruit.
