Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Mar 1, 2018
End Date: Feb 28, 2019
To determine efficacy and attraction of non-target moths to different sex pheromone lures in South Africa.
Pheromone lures produced by U.S., Central American, and European companies will be purchased and shipped to the Cooperator. North-West University will place traps with these lures in different agricultural habitats and monitor populations by collecting, initially identifying, and counting moths. Captured moths will be returned to the U.S. where they will be officially identified and genetically analyzed for host strain and migratory haplotype.
