The larva lives on Crataegus, but it is known also as a serious pest of several fruit trees, especially Malus, less frequently, Prunus domestica, Pyrus and Prunus cerasus. Also known from Swida sanguinea and Sorbus torminalis. The full-grown larva spins a cocoon under loose bark on tree trunks or larger branches. Here, it overwinters, pupating in the spring.
