False codling moth (Thaumatotibia leucotreta) is an insect pest. It was first detected in California in 2008.
This pest poses a large risk to U.S. plant health. It is a significant pest of fruit trees and field crops in portions of Africa. International commerce provides recognized avenues of introduction. This is just one of many forest pests that are moved to un-infested forests by humans moving firewood. Help to protect our forests: don't move firewood!
