Fruits in Slovenia (Winter Moth)

<p><b>Winter Moth (Operophthera brumata L.)</p></b><p>The Winter Moth is a serious pest, causing considerable damage to both the commercial high bush blueberry plantings as well as to the wild stands of native plants. Damage is caused by the brownly-green Winter Moth larvae, which feed on emerging bilberry buds and flowers. When infestations are heavy, the bilberry shrubs may loose their entire crop. In the garden, caterpillars can be handpicked from the plants or left for birds, such as tits to eat. In the forests, Winter Moth caterpillars have many natural enemies, which help to maintain a low winter Moth density, so that the usual visitors to forests hardly notice any damage to bilberries.</p><p>Prof. dr.
