Abstract

The dried fruit moth, Vitula edmandsae serratilineella is so called because it is a pest on almonds and the dried fruit of apples, figs, peaches, prunes and raisins. It is the western race of the wax moth Vitula edmandsae and can be as damaging to colonies and stored comb as the greater and lesser wax moths but has not been studied as well.
