Control - Chemical - In fruit trees

Moment: After flowering.

It is advisable to carry out a chemical treatment if in the previous harvest more than 1% of the fruits had symptoms of this pest (including the other two species of caterpillars of the skin: Adoxophyes orana and Pandemis heparana).

The monitoring of C. pronubana populations is carried out through sexual pheromone traps, but its use as a direct control agent through the interruption of mating is still being questioned.
