Rose (Rosa)-Leafroller


European (filbert) leafroller (Archips rosana)
Fruittree leafroller (Archips argyrospila)
Oblique-banded leafroller (Choristoneura rosaceana)
Pandemis leafroller (Pandemis pyrusana)

Pest description and damage These leafrollers are tortricids, noted for wriggling backwards quickly. They become small moths. They all cause similar damage but differ in their appearance and, more importantly, in their life cycle. The leafroller pests are divided into single-generation moths, such as the fruit tree leafroller and the European leafroller, and two-generation moths, such as the oblique-banded leafroller and pandemis leafroller. The larvae are mostly green caterpillars with a light brown to black head. Mature larvae range from 0.75 to 1.0 inch in length. The 0.75 to 1.0 inch long adult moths have distinctive bands or mottling on the wings, but are rarely seen except when pheromone traps are used to monitor them.
