Abstract:
Trap crops were employed against the pink bollworm (PBW) as a part of a community-wide IPM program in Pima County, AZ. Levels of PBW larvae in the early squares of the trap crops were extraordinarily high, indicating that the trap crops were drawing overwintered PBW moths in from wide areas. This concentrated the overwintered moths in small areas where they could be easily and economically destroyed.
