Abstract
The trapping efficiency of flight (funnel) traps and crevice traps for LGB, Teretriosoma nigrescens and Sitophilus will be tested in traps baited with relevant pheromones, with or without maize volatiles. In addition, in the light of recent studies suggesting that one of the component of the LGB pheromone (T2) is substantially more effective than the other (T1), there will be tests on these components alone and in combination to check this report. Funnel traps will be located at sites on the Kiboko range station while crevice traps will be tested in experimental maize cribs. The cribs will also be used for testing a 'non-attractive' LGB trap consisting of insecticide-treated polystyrene blocks.
