Abstract

The leafroller species, Cnephasia jactatana Walker, is an important pest of kiwifruit in New Zealand. The effect of mating delay on its reproductive performance was investigated in the laboratory to provide information for the development of pheromonal pest control measures such as mating disruption. Reproductive performance of both sexes is adversely affected by mating delay. Females are more severely affected by mating delay than males in terms of reproductive potential. Delaying mating in females for 3 and 4 d reduced the reproductive potential by 29 and 88%, respectively. It is suggested that mating disruption may have potential for the control of this species.
