Apple leaf-curling midge, Dasineura mali

The apple leaf-curling midge is a widespread pest of apple orchards. In recent years, the pest has spread across Europe, North America and New Zealand. Infestations stunt the growth of young trees, and can be difficult to detect without effective monitoring and management tools. As part of an IPM programme, monitor adults using Delta traps with Dasineura mali pheromone lures and Optiroll Super Plus (white-midge) for mass trapping.
