Chapter synopsis: A group of relatively small moths in the family Tortricidae is commonly the most destructive insect pests of deciduous tree fruits throughout the world. This chapter summarizes the recent literature associated with several applied aspects of tortricid management. After an introduction to tortricid systematics and general biology, the chapter examines key species, distribution and dispersal mechanisms of tortricids. The chapter describes insecticide use in organic tree fruit production, as well as techniques of physical crop protection and biological control, including mating disruption and precision pest management. Finally, the chapter examines area-wide integrated pest management (IPM), post-harvest management and molecular tools, as well as looking ahead to future research trends in this area.
