The seasonal occurrence of smaller clearwing moth (Synanthedon tenuis) was monitored with sex pheromone traps in sweet persimmon orchards in Gimhae and Jinju in 1998, 2001, and 2002. Results indicated that it occurred in two generations a year. The first generation of the moth occurred from mid-May to early July, and the second one_from late July to late September, showing the peaks in early June and early to mid-August, respectively.
