A new publication and video from UC IPM is geared to assist field inspectors and nursery scouts who need to identify suspect light brown apple moth larvae in the field.   The field guide can be downloaded as a pdf document on the UC IPM website.  A narrated 13-minute video can be streamed from UC IPM for training purposes. This project, involving author contributions from UC Cooperative Extension, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and Colorado State University, was supported in part by a CDFA Specialty Crop Block Grant.
