Codling moth is a fruit pest, and is quite unique compared to our other species. Larvae are small, slow growing, and not cannibalistic. They bore deep into the diet in the later instars. Hatch rate is typically good, but larvae are quite susceptible to pathogens. This colony originated with the USDA in Washington.
