Abstract:

Captures of male southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella (Dyar), were significantly higher in an International Pheromone Systems (IPS) trap than in any of three sizes of wire cone traps or in a cylindrical trap. Observations of moths with night visionamplifying goggles verified the high attractiveness of the pheromone lure and revealed sustained direct lure contact by male moths. The IPS trap appeared to be most suitable to integrated pest management programs because of its high catch, economy, ease of service and transport, and apparent durability.
