The approach to this project will be: 1) participate cooperatively with scientists at USDA-ARS, Beltsville, MD, and Virginia Tech in developing effective monitoring tools; 2) identify attractive visual stimuli that can be incorporated into a trap design; and 3) evaluate behavioral responses to candidate olfactory stimuli that can be incorporated into a trap to improve overall attractiveness in the field.
