Excerpts from the report Summary: The oriental fruit moth (Grapholitha molesta (Busck)) in the United States is primarily a pest of peach, but it also attacks quince heavily and occasionally apple and pear. It is probably native to eastern Asia. It became established in the Eastern United States about 1915 and in several other countries between 1902 and 1938. The rapid dispersion of the oriental fruit moth in the Eastern United States and Canada was caused by transportation of nursery stock and of infested fruit and containers. Fruit moth migration aids in the spread of infestation from orchard to orchard.
