Abstract:Electric grid traps baited with synthetic pheromone of the cahbage looper, TrichoPlusia ni (Hubner), caught more male cabbage loopers than standard survey light traps baited with the pheromone. Also, grid traps baited with pheromone + one 15-w BL lamp caught 1.3 times more males than similar traps baited only with pheromone. When survey light traps were spaced at various distances from a source of the pheromone where moths were either killed or allowed to escape, the catches were the same whether or not the moths were killed. Statistically significant decreases in light trap catches occurred as the distances between the survey light trap, and the pheromone source were increased from 6 to 48 m; conversely, but only with 5 mg of pheromone, moth catches increased significantly at the pheromone source as the distance from the light trap increased.
