Abstract

A group of relatively small moths in the family Tortricidae is commonly the most destructive insect pests of deciduous tree fruits throughout the world (van der Geest and Evenhuis 1991). Within each geographical area there is typically a defined group of tortricids. This group can include key species whose larvae feed on fruit, externally or internally, and which drives the entire seasonal pest management programme, and any number of external feeders whose larvae may cause sporadic fruit injury and require occasional management. Successful control of tortricids can have a significant impact on the global trade of tree fruits and various phytosanitary regulations are in place to counter their accidental introduction into new areas.

This chapter summarizes the recent literature associated with several applied aspects of tortricid management.
