A monitoring system for Cameraria ohridella males based on a synthetic sex pheromone was tested in the Czech Republic, Germany, France and Greece. From the obtained data on the insect phenology we concluded that in Central Europe C. ohridella typically has three generations per year. The pheromone monitoring can be used to detect the pest when it appears in uninfested areas and is also suitable to determine population densities.
