Numerical Regulation of Populations of the Codling Moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)

Abstract

THE numerical regulation of the codling moth has been investigated in the Australian Capital Territory. Each year, part of the population undergoes two complete generations and begins a third, most individuals of which fail to survive. The other part of the population enters diapause, and the species overwinters as mature, diapausing larvæae produced mainly in the second generation.
