Abstract

Design, dispenser size and type, and trap placement are important factors influencing pink bollworm trap efficiency. Omnidirectional traps are essential for maximum efficiency, and the new cone trap meets this requirement. It does not require any sticky or poisonous substance and is easy to operate. Catches on fallow land may be increased by placing the trap on a silhouette, or close to the ground surface.
