Cabbage flea beetles (Phyllotreta spp.) (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) are important pests of cruciferous plants, which are usually grown in Hungary at an area of 85-90 thousand ha. In the control of flea beetles it would be of importance to sensitively detect the occurrence of overwintering adults becoming active in early spring, to monitor their spread and to assess their population size in the spring and in the summer generations. For this purpose and attractant-baited trap would be the ideal tool. Synthetic allyl isothiocyanate, which in nature is emitted from cruciferous plants, proved to be attractive for several important flea beetle species in Hungary. Earlier we found the CSALOMON registered trademark VARL+ funnel trap as best suited for the capture of flea beetles. In the present study we compare the performance of the new KLP+ ("hat") trap design, which had originally been developed for the capture of the western corn rootworm (Diabrotica v. virgifera Le Conte) (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae), with that of the VARL+ trap design. Flea beetles, similarly to the western corn rootworm, prefer to crawl upwards along vertical surfaces, and belong also to Chrysomelidae. It was also supposed that the yellow colour of the crawl-up pane of the KLP+ trap would be advantageous, since yellow has long been known as attractive for flea beetles. In the tests largest numbers were caught of Ph. cruciferae Goeze, Ph. vittula Redtenbacher and Ph. nigripes Fabricius, all important pests. The KLP+ trap design proved to be much more effective and sensitive than the VARL+ design. Catches in KLP+ traps exceeded those in VARL+ traps at almost all of the inspection dates throughout the season. In conclusion, flea beetles can be detected and monitored more effectively with KLP+ traps baited with allyl isothiocyanate baits.
