Are more visible traps more effective? Visual attraction for pest insects: a fundamental step towards optimum monitoring and mass trapping

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

Most insect traps are visually poorly attractive. Only 10-15% of the insects are actually trapped and sometimes this figure is even lower. The scents used to lure insects may effectively lure them from a distance to the trap but the visual properties of the current traps do rarely encourage them to land on the trap. This project examines the extent to which a more visible insect trap can increase the effectiveness of these traps.
