Comparison of Mating Disruption with Pesticides for Management of Oriental Fruit Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in North Carolina Apple Orchards
TLDR
Mating disruption proved to be an alternative to organophosphate insecticides for managing oriental fruit moth populations in North Carolina apple orchards and provided excellent trap shutdown and was significantly more effective than sprayable pheromone formulations. Expand
Effect of altitude on seasonal flight activity of Rhagoletis cerasi flies (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Altitudinal variation between geographically close locations should be taken into account to properly time monitoring activities and hence to manage R. cerasi populations more effectively. Expand
Effects of pheromone loading, dispenser age, and trap height on pheromone trap catches of the oriental fruit moth in apple orchards
TLDR
There was no apparent relationship between pheromone trap catch and septa age, with trap catch appearing to be primarily a function ofG. Expand
Monitoring the Oriental Fruit Moth with pheromone and bait traps in apple orchards under different management regimes
TLDR
Cumulative moth catch in pheromone traps during late-season flight was a better predictor of fruit damage than catch in bait traps. Expand
Effects of application rate and interval on the efficacy of sprayable pheromone for mating disruption of the oriental fruit mothGrapholita molesta
TLDR
Low rate frequent applications of sprayable formulation appeared to be effective under low pest pressure but efficacy declined with increasing populations, and further studies are needed to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach under higher pest pressure. Expand
Mass trapping low-density populations of Tuta absoluta with various types of traps in field-grown tomatoes
TLDR
Mass trapping with delta traps significantly reduced the percentage of infested leaves and fruits compared with insecticide-treated controls and factors affecting the trapping efficiency in the field are discussed. Expand
Reduced-Risk Management of Rhagoletis cerasi Flies (Host Race Prunus) in Combination with a Preliminary Phenological Model
TLDR
Seasonal flight activity of Rhagoletis cerasi (L.) (Diptera: Tephritidae) adults was monitored using yellow sticky traps at sweet cherry orchards under different management regimes in Bursa, northwestern Turkey, during 1997–1998 to suggest optimal timing of insecticide applications. Expand
High versus ultra-low volume spraying of a microencapsulated pheromone formulation for codling moth control in two apple cultivars
TLDR
It is suggested that spray volume and pressure reductions can increase the number of microcapsules deposited on leaves and fruits. Expand
Evaluation of extended‐season mating disruption of the Oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta (Busck) (Lep., Tortricidae) in apples
TLDR
The combination of each mating disruption treatment with insecticide application against first generation Oriental fruit moth was as effective as the conventional insecticide treatment under moderate population pressure. Expand
