Pest Behaviour

The Sesia (Synanthedon myopaeformis) has an evolutionary cycle that lasts 1 or 2 years, depending on the evolutionary stage of the larvae. In winter, those that are in the most advanced evolutionary stages will give rise to new adults during the spring, while those that are in the first larval stages will remain for another year, evolving until they reach the maximum levels the following winter and, thus, give place other adults next spring.

It is a pest that affects several species of the Rosaceae family such as the quince tree, the pear tree or the medlar tree, its main host being the apple tree. It can also be found in gardens, woodlands and hedgerows. It is not a pest that is very present throughout the Iberian Peninsula, but where it is found it can cause very serious damage.

The sesia larva feeds on the wood, creating galleries under the bark, reducing yields of the trees by hindering or preventing the circulation of sap.

Adults are easily identifiable by their transparent wings with black edges and the bright orange stripe that crosses their abdomen.
