Effect of wind speed and direction on the approach of soybean loopers to a pheromone source in the field



Effect of wind speed and direction on the approach of soybean loopers to a pheromone source in the field



Florida Entomologist 61(1): 19-25



The influence of wind speed and direction on the attraction of males of Pseudoplusia includens (Wlk.) to a synthetic pheromone source in the field was investigated in Florida in 1974-75 using a pheromone-baited electric-grid trap and a wind-recording instrument set up in a soy-bean field. The hexagonal insect trap, with associated electronics, gave information on the number and timing of insect captures and the direction of their approach.
