This study was carried out at pomegranate orchards in Adana, Mersin and Osmaniye provinces of the Eastern Mediterranean Region in 2008-2009. In this study, it was aimed to reveal the status of Honeydew moth [Cryptoblabes gnidiella Milliere, 1867 (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)] in the region by determining some criteria that are essential for the control of the pest such as trap hanging time, the emergence time of adults, adult population dynamics, peak times of population, the period for adults to be active in the nature and generation number. The adult population dynamics of C. gnidiella observed with the pheromone traps. To determine generation number development threshold and total effective temperature was used.
