Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: We examined the lures for the cranberry fruitworm (CFW), the sparganothis fruitworm (SFW), and the blackheaded fireworm (BHFW). These lures were purchased from ISCA Technologies, Great Lakes IPM, Scentry, and Trécé. Based on our first analyses of lure compositions at the University of Wisconsin BioTech Center, we are seeing some significant differences.
