Using LUREMTR to trap thrips in glasshouse crops in Victoria Australia
AbstractTrials were undertaken in glasshouse crops in Victoria Australia to test the effect of LUREMTR on numbers of thrips trapped LUREMTR is a newly developed commercial thrips lure (especially for Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) Thrips tabaci (Lindeman) and Thrips major (Uzel)) and is used in greenhouses in Northern Europe In 2008 LUREMTR was trialled in a commercial rose glasshouse in Officer Victoria in October and a vegetable nursery glasshouse in Daylesford Victoria in October November and December In the rose greenhouse the numbers of thrips caught on blue sticky boards with LUREMTR increased by 28 over 4 days Additionally a prototype lure in this glasshouse increased thrips capture by up to 68 over 2 days In the vegetable nursery greenhouse the number of thrips on yellow sticky boards with LUREMTR increased by up to 400 over 7 days Differences in the effect of LUREMTR on numbers of thrips trapped in these trials and other trials are discussed
