 UC IPM: UC Management Guidelines for Codling Moth on Apple
Monitor pheromone-treated orchards carefully to assure that mated moths have not moved in from adjacent orchards and that the pheromone is successfully disrupting mating.
In orchards with high codling moth populations or in the first year of mating disruption, apply a treatment at 250 DD to catch the moths of the first peak of the overwintered moth flight (tebufenozide-Confirm would be applied at 600-700 DD).
In orchards where codling moth is managed primarily with insecticides, the need and timing for treatment is influenced by the codling moth pressure in the orchard, which can be determined by trap catches.

 Review Article - Diamondback Moth
In 1953, diamondback moth became the first crop pest in the world to develop resistance to DDT (7, 83), and now in many countries diamondback moth has become resistant to every synthetic insecticide used against it in the field (174, 175).
These studies indicate that moths are able to remain in continuous flight for several days and cover distances of 1000 km per day, but how the moths survive at such low temperatures and high attitude is not known.
Using sprinkler irrigation to control diamondback moth in crops other than watercress, however, is not practical on a commercial farm because of the high cost and probable increase of diseases such as fl rot and downy mildew.

In orchards where codling moth is managed primarily with insecticides, the need and timing for treatment is influenced by the codling moth pressure in the orchard, which can be determined by pheromone trap catches.
For low to moderate moth populations, a single application is usually sufficient; make this application when 200 to 250 DD have accumulated from the second biofix.
