Control of three major bollworm pests of cotton in Pakistan by a single application of their combined sex pheromones

, : Control of three major bollworm pests of cotton in Pakistan by a single application of their combined sex pheromones. Tropical Pest Management 33(4): 374

Tests in Pakistan with a Mitsubishi 'twist-tie' pheromone formulation containing the major components of Pectinophora gossypiella, Earias vittella and E. insulana pheromones achived almost complete trap suppression of all 3 species for up to 8 weeks following a single application at the pin-square stage of cotton.
