The use of a suction trap for monitoring flight activity of cereal aphids (Homoptera: Aphidinea: Aphididae)


, : The use of a suction trap for monitoring flight activity of cereal aphids (Homoptera: Aphidinea: Aphididae). Entomologia Generalis 16(2): 161-166

A suction trap at a height of 12.2 m above the ground was used to monitor aphids at Aschersleben, Germany, in 1985-90. The results were compared with those for a yellow tray. Of the cereal aphids, Rhopalosiphum maidis and Sitobion avenae were much more abundant in the suction trap than in the yellow tray, while the number of examples of Metopolophium dirhodum was mostly no higher than in the yellow trap.

A storage solution that was previously developed for storing trapped aphids without loss of carboxylesterase activity was used to preserve Rhopalosiphum padi for the enumeration of virus particles. There was no significant difference in the number...

Suction trap catches at 12.2 m of the cereal aphids Rhopalosiphum padi (L.), Sitobion avenae (F.) and Metopolophium dirhodum (Walk.) over 5 yr is presented. Their seasonal flight periodicity is described. The relationship between spring, summer an...

Daily catches of flying aphids in Poznan, Poland, carried out from 1973 to 1976 using suction traps, enabled population changes in many species to be monitored. The most common species was Rhopalosiphum padi (L.) which accounted for 30% of all aph...

Over the 10 years of operation of the trap, the most frequently ca...

The development of these ideas is reviewed and a modern synthesis is pres...
