Pupae were selected from uninfected families by weight (as above) and early-eclosing adults were used in limited mass-matings of 50 pairs in each of 3–8 mating chambers per sub-colony.

Nevertheless, Dwyer () provides indirect evidence that movement behaviour affects the risk that Douglas‐fir tussock moth larvae (Orgyia pseudotsugata) become infected with tussock–moth NPV. Similarly, Hails et al. invoke small‐scale spatial structure as a determinant of NPV transmission in the cabbage moth (Mamestra brassicae). The forest tent caterpillar, Malacosoma disstria Hübner (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae) is a native forest defoliator with a broad geographic range in North America. Forest tent caterpillars experience cyclical population changes and at high densities, repeated defoliation can cause reduced tree growth and tree mortality. Pheromone-based monitoring of forest tent caterpillar moths can provide

Beckwith, R. Mason, H. Paul Abstract. Reproduction in female spruce budworms, Choristoneura fumiferana, entails sedentary oviposition early in life (gravid females with their heavy abdomen full of eggs are unable to sustain flight), followed by short- and long-range dispersal by females that have laid a portion of their size measurements (wing surface area and dry weight) of gravid females, spent females at The Douglas-fir tussock moth (DFTM), Orgyia pseudotsugata McDunnough (Lepidoptera:Erebidae:Lymantriinae), is a native western North American defoliator of true fir, Abies spp.

The Douglas-fir tussock moth (Orgyia pseudotsugata) is one of the most destructive forest defoliators of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), grand fir (Abies grandis) and white fir (A. concolor) in western North America.
