Distribution
Hessian fly is present throughout Western Europe, including Scandinavia, and extends intoNorth Africa, the Middle East, eastwards into Russia and India. In North America it occurs inCanada and in the USAfrom the Atlantic to thePacific, and it is also well established in NewZealand's North and South Islands.
Potential impact
In autumn and spring, larval feeding on youngplants stunts growth and the central shootsyellow and die. Severe infestations at this stagemay kill plants, resulting in gaps in the crop. At laterstages of crop growth, larvae feeding at the nodesweaken the developing stems.
