Abstract:Activity of adult bollworms, Heliothis zea (Boddie) and tobacco budworms, H. virescens (F.), was monitored with BL and pheromone traps. Light traps captured far more of both sexes of bollworms than of tobacco budworms; pheromone traps seemed more effective in early season when populations were low. When both species were combined as attractants in the same pheromone traps, significantly fewer moths of each species were captured than when traps contained only 1 species.
