Evaluation of the trapping effect of different types of attractant lures and traps combinations on Spodoptera frugiperda.

Abstract

To provide the best technical support for integrated control of Spodoptera frugiperda. We have evaluated the trapping effect of lures and traps, and the combinations between them, to find out the best combination of lures and traps for trapping S. frugiperda male. In the lure optimization screening test, 3 types of lure numbered 3-4, 4-2, and 4-3 among 9 types of lures were the most effective and specific in trapping S. frugiperda male. In the trap screening test, 5 kinds of common traps on the market have been tested, the barrel trap is 2 times more effective than the other types of traps. In the trap screening test, Xianglin 3-3 trap was the best trap for S. frugiperda male, under the conditions of using the barrel traps and the small Noctuidae trap. This study provides a new technical approach to the integrated control of the S.frugiperda in China.
