In field trapping tests, reproducing males of Anthonomus grandis Boheman were twice as attractive as males in diapause, and the attractiveness of diapausing males did not differ from that of unbaited traps. Frass from reproducing males was 4 × more attractive than frass from diapausing males in olfactometer tests. However, the increased incidence of pheromone deficient diapausing weevils in field populations in the fall does not clearly explain the renewed efficiency of pheromone traps during this period.
