The structure of a model of leaf-eating insects' population density dynamics is considered. The system of differential equations describing the larval stage of an oak-leaf roller (Tortrix viridana) and some results obtained by computer simulation of the larva development process, are also given. The model suggested may be used for forecasting the degree of foliage damage caused by the oak-leaf roller and for solving problems on rational control of the population density of this dangerous oak-forest pest.
