Control of Anarsia lineatella and Cydia molesta by mating disruption
Field experiments were carried out in southern Italy during the years 1988-1991 in order to control Anarsia lineatella and Cydia molesta (EPPO A2 pests) by the mating disruption technique. The experiments were carried out in plots of 1 ha of nectarines.
It was found that the control programme with the mating disruption technique was as successful as the applied conventional control methods by insecticide application.
