Since 1972 agricultural warning services have used sexual-trapping processes involving synthetic sexual pheromones which supersede traps using food, light or color. This mainly involves: Laspeyresia pomonella L., Grapholita molesta Busck., Lobesia botrana Schiff., Laspeyresia funebrana Tr. and Eupoecilia ambiguella Bb. Evaluation of results from the first 3 of these shows that substantial progress was made when compared with former trapping methods.
