The spread of viral infection in moths,

Roose, T. and Maini, P. K. and Cory, J. and Hails, R S (1995) The spread of viral infection in moths,. Journal of Agricultural Science (Cambridge), 125 . p. 161.



To control insect pests with a virus, it is important to determine the optimum time for the treatment. However, before analysing this problem, a realistic model for the uninfected host must be developed. A model framework for this has been developed and applied to the pine beauty moth which is a major pest of lodgepole pine in Scotland.
