Abstract
Pheromone trials for monitoring and controlling diamondback moth (DBM) Plutella xylostella (Linnaeus), were conducted for the first time in Kenya at three localities close to Nairobi, Central Kenya, during the major rainy season of 1997. This work forms part of project entitled: "Investigations of biorational methods for control of insect pests of vegetables in Kenya" funded by the UK government's Department for International Development (DFID) for the benefit of developing countries. The project's main purpose is to develop and promote improved methods for the management of weeds, insect pests, diseases and nematodes in Market gardening and horticultural enterprises using environmentally compatible, naturally occurring and selective biorational control technologies such as insect sex pheromones and granulosis virus.
