Pink bollworm(Pectinophora gossypiella (Saund.)) adults responded to a light trap equipped with three 2-watt argon glow lamps at distances up to 140 feet. The light intensity was reduced about half by the apparatus used; therefore, the moths responded to an intensity equivalent to that produced by the trap at an unobstructed distance of approximately 200 feet. Response at distances beyond 140 feet was not determined because of inadequate facilities.
