Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) are the second most diverse pest insects after beetles. There is hardly any cultivated plant that is not attacked by at least one lepidopteran pest.
- As pollinators of many plants, adult moths and butterflies are usually beneficial insects that feed on nectar using their siphoning proboscis.
- The caterpillar however almost always has chewing mouthparts that are suitable for feeding on various parts of a plant and causing production losses.
- Most caterpillars are defoliators or miners of succulent plant tissues.
- Some (for example wood moths) can cause gum pockets and introduce rot resulting in timber degrade. They bore large holes in stems which can leave smaller trees susceptible to wind damage.
- They can be severe pests of seedlings in the nursery (for instance cutworms or armyworms) which can cause partial to complete defoliation and bending of the seedlings.
- Many species of lepidopteran pests can cause outbreaks in certain plants, causing a significant drop in yield and economic losses.
