Spectral specific discrimination by hylemya antiqua diptera anthomyiidae and other vegetable infesting species


Environmental Entomology 12(3): 650-655
Spectral specific discrimination by hylemya antiqua diptera anthomyiidae and other vegetable infesting species
Manufactured cardboards of 13 chromatic or achromatic hues were used to study color attraction in H. antiqua (meigen), H. brassicae (Bouche), H. platura (Meigen), and Thrips spp. in and around onion and cabbage fields. H. antiqua consistently responded in highest numbers to gray-, yellow- (2 hues), white- and blue-colored cards in 3 experiments. H. platura responded to the same colors, with a marked preference for gray and a significant response to green in 1 of 2 experiments. H. brassicae was attracted to yellow (2 hues), white, gray, blue, and buff, in that order. Thrips spp. consistently preferred the 2 yellows, blue, buff, and gray in 4 experiments conducted inside an onion field. Yellow would be the most effective color with which to simultaneously monitor all the species studied.
