Some nice photos in this! I see there is a recommendation for mass trapping of male moths using pheromone traps @ 15/acre. Is there any published research on this? Does anyone have data showing mass-trapping is effective at reducing yield loss? What area would need to be covered by trapping for it to be effective (as moths are strong flyers, I would expect it to be much less effective on smaller areas?)
