 en Environmental monitoring of Archips podana check for this species in other resources (fruit tree tortrix moth) in Bramley apple orchards in Northern Ireland
A. G. S. Cuthbertson and A. K. Murchie

Abstract

Apple is host to many species of tortricid moths. Archips podana check for this species in other resources is an economically important species in the Bramley's Seedling apple orchards of Northern Ireland. Chemical pesticides are routinely applied to control moth populations. Pheromone trapping has shown that the moths are not concentrated in any particular habitat. Moth damage to fruit is generally negligible. The need for careful judgement to be applied before deciding on the application of chemical pesticides to control moth populations is discussed.
