Research Project: MONITORING ADULT LEAFROLLERS AND CODLING MOTH WITH ONE NON-PHEROMONE LURE

Location: Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research

Project Number: 5352-22430-001-29
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: May 01, 2011
End Date: Apr 30, 2013

Objective:
1. Evaluate the correlation of leafroller adult catches in traps baited with pear ester and acetic acid with local larval populations within orchards. 2. Evaluate the relative attractiveness of other host plant volatiles in combination with acetic acid for both leafrollers and codling moth.

Approach:
Orchards with known leafroller populations will be identified in the Wenatchee and Yakima Valleys. Blocks will be monitored with traps baited with acetic acid and pear ester. Leafroller larval populations and fruit injury will be sampled and correlated with moth catches. Replicated trials will be conducted in a few sites to compare the attractiveness of several different host plant volatiles plus acetic acid.
