Damage to fruit and leaves of apple trees caused by bactericidal ultraviolet light used to trap codling moths



Damage to fruit and leaves of apple trees caused by bactericidal ultraviolet light used to trap codling moths



J. econ. Ent 63: 1003-4. bibl. 5



In an orchard of Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apple trees 4 types of UV lamp (6- and 15-W blacklight, 8-W bactericidal and 2-W argon lamps) were hung in the tree canopies at 18 stations. Each station received a different type of light every week for 3 or 4 weeks, and the rotation was then repeated. The lamps were operated for 12 hours/day from the 6th week after flowering to the end of the season. Argon lights replaced the bactericidal lights from the 11th week.
