Estimation of larval populations of wireworms with a bait trap






Phytoma ( 436): 26-28, 30

Estimation of larval populations of wireworms with a bait trap

The use of bait traps (containing a mixture of maize and wheat) set in the soil (especially in maize fields) to monitor larval populations of Agriotes in France during 1990 is described. Information is included on the relation between catches and the existing populations, setting the traps in the soil, the damage caused by elaterids to maize, the development of larval populations in the field, and the relation between catches and damage.

The use of vegetable and cereal food baits as an alternative to soil sampling for detecting wireworms (Agriotes spp.) in field soils was investigated in two field experiments in 1993. A simple cereal-baited trap was found to be at least as effecti...
