 en Evironmental monitoring of economically important invertebrate pests in Bramley apple orchards in Northern Ireland
A. G. S. Cuthbertson and A. K. Murchie

Abstract

Apple orchards are host to many species of both pest and beneficial invertebrates. Many of the pest species can cause severe economic damage if populations are left unchecked. Within Northern Irish Bramley apple orchards only four species are deemed to be of economic importance; Panonychus ulmi check for this species in other resources , Aculus schlechtendali check for this species in other resources , Rhopalosiphum insertum check for this species in other resources and Archips podana check for this species in other resources . Little information exists on the current population status and economic damage potential of these four pests. The population levels of these species and their potential to cause economic damage on the Bramley fruit is therefore discussed in regard to current economic spray thresholds.
