Assessment of color response and flight activity of Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) using window flight traps



Assessment of color response and flight activity of Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) using window flight traps



Environmental Entomology, 165: 1199-1202



Colour attraction and flight behaviour of adults of Leptinotarsa decemlineata were investigated using window flight traps placed in a potato field in Virginia. Adults were attracted to yellow traps with peak wavelength reflectance between 550 and 580 nm. Similar peak reflectance was recorded for potato leaf material. There was evidence that red, with peak reflectance at 680 nm, and black, with low uniform reflectance, were avoided.
