Abstract:
Pink bollworm (Pectinophora gossypiella) is a major pest of cotton, remained active throughout the year with minimal population during June, when temperature crossed 40̊C. For monitoring its population, delta traps baited with gossyplure (sex pheromone) were used. First smaller peak appeared in April and second peak the larger one in October. The moth population pattern was observed similar during the whole year for both the years of study i.e., 1995 and 1996.
The results revealed that gossyplure is an effective attractant for male moths of pink bollworm and can be used successively for monitoring seasonal emergence and population development in future period, as a tool in pest management programme. The use of sex pheromone such as gossyplure result in a substantial reduction in the number of pesticide application required for the control of bollworms during the cotton growing season.
