The diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) is one of the most abundant pest species occurring all over the world and it is a threat wherever its host plants of the Brassicaceae family occur. Diamondback moth adults are wind-borne and can migrate over long distances and can become a pest in regions where the pest cannot overwinter due to low temperature.
