oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Low temperature sterilization of false Codling Moth, Argyroploce leucotreta Meyr., in export citrus



The false codling moth, Argyroploce leucotreta Meyr., is a pest of citrus in South Africa (Hepburn & Bishop, 1954). This is due to both the direct losses of fruit caused by the insect and the nuisance value of even a relatively small precentage of infestation by this pest in handling fruit in packhouses and in subsequent spoilage in packed cases containing occasional infested fruits.
