Cage test to assess the mating disruptant activity for different pheromone blends and formulations on Peach Twig Borer (Anarsia lineatella Zeller) in the orchards


Abstract: Mesh cages were used as a method for assessing the disruption of Peach Twig Borer (Anarsia lineatella Zeller) and Oriental Fruit Moth (Grapholita molesta (Busck)) mating in peach orchards where different blends of synthetic pheromones and different dispenser formulations have been applied. The trials carried out in the seasons 2006-2008 showed that this method is easy to apply for evaluating the effectiveness of MD in the field and gives a reliable feedback allowing fine-tuning of formulations.
