Pheromone Trapping Systems: Refinement of Protocols for Monitoring European Corn Borer and Fall Armyworm in Sweet Corn; and Development of an Effective Pheromone Trapping System for European Corn Borer in Potato and Snap Beans
Knodel, Janet; Roelofs, Wendell; Linn, Charles; Stivers, Lee
Development of a simple and successful pheromone trapping protocol requires a trap design that catches moths efficiently, a pheromone lure with the correct chemical composition and load rate, and the proper trap placement in the field. The goal of this research project was to identify or refine the pheromone trapping system for monitoring Lepidopterous insect pest, the European corn borer - Ostrinia nubilalis (ECB), in sweet corn, potato, pepper, and snap beans.
