Efficiency comparison of three attractant products against Webbing clothes moth T. bisselliella (Hummel) (Lepidoptera: Tineidae) using an adapted four arms olfactometer

I.Arnault, M.Decoux, D.De Reyer, J.Auger

In the past years test systems for the evaluation of attractants have been developed and further refined in our laboratory. A standardized test system for the evaluation of attractants in choice or non- choice bioassay has been used for the studies of behavior and biology of Tineola bisselliella. Actually, three attractant products were tested with our method  and significant differencies  appeared . We found that the products present some differencies in the attraction of clothes moth and some variations in the male attraction appeared clearly with this test sytem. The results obtained with this test sytem were relevant for the practice.
