|Abstract: ||Purpose: Feed resources for larval development act on attractive ability of Ectomyelois ceratoniae Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) females. Its sex pheromone components are synthesized but due low stability not acceptable to recommend for pest control. As alternative method, the reared virgin female moths are suggested for baiting in pheromone traps. To aim this purpose we conducted this research.
Method: The female moths were reared on dietary treatments including fruits of pomegranates and figs and semi-artificial diet in the laboratory. The traps were used for nine days on sunset in the pomegranate and fig orchards. By next morning, the captured moths by the traps were collected and counted.
Results: The results confirmed that different treatments attracted different number of moths significantly. In pomegranate and fig orchards, means of captured moths by the traps baited with the reared females on pomegranate and fig fruits were more than other treatments, respectively. In both orchards, the reared females on semi-artificial diet captured less compare to two treatments. The interactions between treatments and orchards were significant different.
Conclusion: We reported the efficiency of feeding supply during the larval period for sex pheromone production and their ability to attract moths of E. ceratoniae in the orchards.|
