The effect of Eastern tent caterpillar (Malacosoma americanum) infestation on fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea) selection of black cherry (Prunus serotina) as a host tree


, : The effect of Eastern tent caterpillar (Malacosoma americanum) infestation on fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea) selection of black cherry (Prunus serotina) as a host tree. American Midland Naturalist 153(2): 270-275

A study was undertaken in 2001 to determine whether the presence of Eastern tent caterpillars (M. americanum) on black cherry (P. serotina) affects selection of the same tree by fall webworms (H. cunea) in the same season. Five study sites were selected in Indiana and Jefferson counties in western Pennsylvania (USA), each containing 30-50 black cherry trees, which were marked and measured. The total number of Eastern tent caterpillar nests was counted on each tree in June 2001.
