CHEMICAL ATTRACTANTS FOR TRAPPING AND BAITING POLISTES PAPER WASPS WITHIN NAVY LEASED LAND
Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research
2010 Annual Report
1a.Objectives (from AD-416)
Develop pest management methods for paper wasps that are invasive on Tinian and other islands in the Marianas.
1b.Approach (from AD-416)
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.
