In location IV, the expected early season peak during May-Jun 2001 was not observed, but the YPAC peaked in late season below 40 aphids per terminal (Fig.
6) YPAC never reached high numbers but several peaks were detected from mid to late season.
YPAC were low and they should have been high when the trees were visited.
YPAC were found in low numbers and the predators observed were H.
