Trap tests of sweet potato leaf folder with sex pheromone



Trap tests of sweet potato leaf folder with sex pheromone



Fujian Nongye Keji (3): 19-20



Experiments on the use of the sex pheromone to trap and control Brachmia macroscopa Meyr., a pest of sweet potato, were carried out in 5 counties in eastern Fujian Province, China, in 1977--79. Earthenware pots containing water to within 2--3 cm of the top were placed in the sweet-potato fields; a little detergent was added to the water. Tablets containing 20, 40, 50 or 75 mg synthetic sex pheromone were placed in the pots or suspended over them.
