European Grapevine Moth Report
AgBio has supplied Europe with the pheromone lure and trap used to monitor for a number of years.
The pheromone lure is used to monitor male flights. Place traps with lures high in the canopy at a rate of 1-2 traps per 20 acres. Check traps no less than once per week and record the number of moths trapped. Record the weekly catches to determine the make flight peak for each generation. Monitor traps through the third flight.
Change lures every 4 weeks. Traps that can be used are Delta, Diamond, and Wing.
