Monitoring and Control of Codling Moth (Cydia pomonella, Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) by Pheromone Traps in Quetta, Pakistan

Muhammad Faheem Malik and Liaquat Ali

Abstract:
Codling moth (Cydia pomonella, Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) was monitored and controlled in the valley of Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan, in an apple orchard by pheromone traps. The moth got climax at 19.50 and 18.85 during Ist and 29.30 and 27.90°C during 2nd generation, 1998, 99 respectively. A total average of 267 and 273 moths were captured during the entire seasons in the said years respectively. Comparing to the chemical control, the results are not attractive, but the study reveals that the technique could be used, for monitoring/forecasting, in addition to the control of the said pest in the field.
