Yponomeuta malinella. Pest description and crop damage Apple ermine moth is an invasive insect from Eurasia that has established in the Pacific Northwest.

The adult insect is a long, narrow moth up to inch long, white with small black spots, and long, backward-sweeping antennae. Apple ermine moths overwinter as young larvae underneath egg masses that the females deposited on tree bark the previous summer.

The larvae sometimes feed on bark under the egg mass. In early spring, larvae emerge from the protective covering, or hibernaculum, and move to nearby developing leaves. Moth Books.
