Abstract:

In the present investigation, twelve types of lure traps with different combinations were evaluated for monitoring the fruit fly population for two seasons i.e. during 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. The studies revealed that, there was a significant difference recorded among all the twelve traps in both seasons. For 2017-2018 season, in commercial traps, Green victory methyl eugenol (ME) fruit fly trap showed the best performance in capturing adult fruit fly population throughout the cropping period with catch of 479.33 fruit flies/trap. However, among innovative traps, low cost mineral bottle trap (ME + wooden block + spinosad) was found superior with 436.33 fruit flies/trap. Similarly, for 2018-2019 season, in commercial traps, Green victory methyl eugenol (ME) fruit fly trap showed the best performance in capturing adult fruit fly population throughout the cropping period with catch of 475.00 fruit flies/trap. However, among innovative traps, low cost mineral bottle trap (ME + wooden block + spinosad) was found superior with 440.00 fruit flies/trap.
