Gardens contain edible and ornamental, herbaceous and woody plants which attract many different kinds of insect larvae. In middle Georgia, peach tree pests furnish huge numbers of larvae, in gardens and orchards. Examples include the caterpillar stage of the oriental fruit moth (Grapholita molesta), the grub stage of Japanese beetles (Popillia japonica), and the larval stages of green June beetles (Cotinus nitida), peach tree borers (Synanthedon exitiosa, S. pictipes), plum curculio (Conotrachelus nenuphar), and shothole borers (Scolytus rugulosus).
