Cimbex quadrimaculata Müll. is an important pest in fruit-growing areas of Turkey where its hosts include almond, pear, plum, peach, apricot, and cherry. Surveys on C. quadrimaculata in various ecologies have been conducted in the provinces (Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Elaziğ, Mardin) of Southeastern and Eastern Anatolia regions of Turkey between the years 2010-2014. C. quadrimaculata larvae collected from Amygdalus communis L. (Rosacae) in Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Elaziğ, Mardin. There were similarities in the larvae population changes in Adiyaman-Diyarbakir and Elaziğ-Mardin. The highest density of the larvae was recorded of Besni location in Adiyaman province. Population density of the larvae was low in Mardin. Occurrence of the larvae generally observed between April and July in the all of province. C. quadrimaculata overwinter as a pre-pupa in a cocoon in the ground or other protected place, pupating in the spring. In early summer, adults lay eggs in or on plant tissue and the larvae feed on the leaves.
