Hello, Intergrated pest management family, i am currently doing a masters in entomology,so would like to ask if any member can suggest a paper/journal/book/site where it talks about the use of baits to control fall armyworm. A no smell, efficient(fast reaction before multiplication of species and species specific. Thanks in advance.),
Baits on fall armyworm, the bait should be without smell,species-specific and efficient.
Do you mean food attractants? There is a bait used in Australia to attract Helicoverpa made by AgBiTech. Not sure if they’ve tried it on FAW. Maybe Shachi Gurumayum (ShachiG) who is a member of this community could assist. See also https://www.agbitech.com.au/magnet
Pheromones also act as a bait, but mass trapping using pheromones has not really been shown to be effective for FAW. However, Provivi is developing mating disruption with pheromones and has a product registered in Kenya – see https://www.provivi.com/en/news-articles/provivi-announces-regulatory-approval-in-kenya
