Abstract

Our studies illustrate the dynamic nature of both the availability of split nuts and the prevalence of NOW after harvest, as well as illustrate the low density of moths needed to begin the next generation in the spring. Additionally, our work provides some insight into the relative importance of ground mummies compared to tree mummies. Although mortality was greater in ground mummies, they were more important because of their number.
