Responses of 24-h-old eggs and first through fifth in stars of the oriental fruit moth (OFM), Grapholita molesta (Busck),in artificially infested nectarines, Prunus persica (L.) Batsch var. nucipersica Schneid, to methyl bromide (MB) fumigation for 2 h at 21°C is reported. Eggs were least susceptible and first in stars were most susceptible when LC50's and concentrations to cause 100% mortality were compared. A MB dose of 30 g/m3 resulted in 100% egg mortality. A currently used MB quarantine fumigation schedule of 32 g/m3 for 2 h at 16–26°C was determined to be efficacious against OFM in nectarines for export to British Columbia.
