Oriental Fruit Moth – Grapholita molesta (Busck)

Oriental Fruit Moth

Native to China and the Korea peninsula, where the peach tree is also native, the Oriental fruit moth was spread to many temperate fruit-growing areas of the world during the first thirty years of the 20th century. Today, the only commercial peach-growing area of North America which is free of the pest is the province of British Columbia.
