Title: Sticky-board trap for measuring dispersal of spruce budworm larvae

Author: Jennings, Daniel T.; Houseweart, Mark W.;

Date: 1983

Source: Res. Pap. NE-526. Broomall, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiement Station. 7p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Describes a new sticky-board trap for measuring early-larval dispersal of the spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), and evaluates trap-board color and screened versus unscreened traps. Dispersing spruce budworm larvae showed no preference for trap color; fewer nontarget arthropods were caught on dark-colored than on light-colored traps. Screened traps caught significantly more spruce budworm larvae than unscreened traps, and they were easier to examine.

Keywords: Choristoneura fumiferana, larval dispersal, trap color, trap design, sampling methods
