Abstract:Electric grid traps collected 101 times more Heliothis virescens (F.) moths than unbaited blacklight traps, 4.4 times more than blacklight traps baited with 10 virgin female moths, and 9.0 times more than sticky traps. Grid traps with the bait placed inside the grid element caught 7.8 times more males than did the same traps with bait placed about 6 inches to one side of the grid element.
