The effectiveness of the trap types and lures used for mass trapping to control cherry fruit fly [Rhagoletis cerasi (L., 1758)] (Diptera: Tephritidae)

Abstract :

Trapping experiments were carried out in Ankara and Çankırı Provinces, Turkey during 1998-2000. Several traps and trap combinations with different food attractants were used in mass trapping to control Rhagoletis cerasi L. The most effective trap combination was found to be the visual yellow sticky Rebell trap and slowly released ammonia capsule. It was concluded that for a successful mass trapping, hanging four of these trap combination per tree was sufficient. It was found that the effectiveness of mass trapping was 95.99-97.41% in cherry orchards
