Abstract:

During a 3-yr study, the number of emerging overwintered Anthonomus grandis Boheman captured in Leggett traps was positively correlated throughout the emergence period with the number of A. grandis found previously in samples of surface woods trash. Thus, the traps can detect a potential early field population on individual farms. This information will be useful in both pest management and eradication programs.
