The banded fruit weevil, Phlyctinus callosus Boh., is a key pest in apple and nectarine orchards where adults cause crop losses worth at least 14 million annually by feeding on the fruits. Management of the pest is hampered by a lack of understanding ofits biology and behaviour.Aspects of the biology of the eggs and immature stages were studied with a view to improving management in deciduous fruit orchards.
