Research Project: CHEMICAL ATTRACTANTS FOR TRAPPING AND BAITING POLISTES PAPER WASPS WITHIN NAVY LEASED LAND Project Number: 5352-22430-001-11
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 08, 2013

Objective:
Develop pest management methods for paper wasps that are invasive on Tinian and other islands in the Marianas.

Approach:
Chemical attractants and baits will be tested to determine efficacy against Tinian Island wasps. Pheromones will be identified to produce possible attractants. Optimized lures and traps will be evaluated as tools to reduce wasp populations. Documents reimbursable with Dept. of Navy/DOD. Log 40366. Formerly 5352-22000-017-56R (6/10); 5352-22000-019-22R (1/11).
